The Good Shepherd

The Good Shepherd (2006)
This movie explores the career of an early CIA officer through the lens of his own reflections as he tries to determine the source of the security leak that caused the Bay of Pigs Invasion to fail.

An interesting, if slow, spy movie. Although it may only be inspired by actual events rather than driven by them, it tells a plausible story about the beginnings of modern tradecraft. I thought the non chronological progression took away from, rather than adding to the story. The film contained a slate of good actors who were entirely convincing. The story made sense and was engaging, but was not “gripping”.
