If your taste varies around spy thrillers, then don't be shy to check out french film Farewell, which just got a limited release in Los Angeles & New York a week ago. Its main stars are notably well talented filmmakers (Emir Kusturica & Guillaume Canet) & its subject concerns the very end of the cold war and how a spy literally ended it, all on his own. Gripping stuff. I wrote about it in The Concordian a year ago when I was covering a French Montreal film fest, that can be checked out HERE. I'll be back later on to review the new Arcade Fire record, which is just really awesome & should be bought by all rock music geeks.
