Yuri Nosenko, KGB Reviews

  • Oct 30, 2009

    Geneva, 1962: At an international conference CIA Officer Steve Daly is approached by KGB Major Yuri Nosenko who offers to become his agent. Weary of "provocation" Daley and the CIA accept. 2 years later President Kennedy is assassinated and Nosenko seeks asylum in America bringing news that Lee Harvey Oswald had no connection to the KGB. As Nosenko is debriefed holes in his story become apparent, warned by another Soviet defactor Anatoly Goletsyn of "false defactors", a KGB misinformation campaign and "Sasha" a high ranking KGB Agent inside the CIA, Daley and his superiors construct a secret facility where Nosenko will begin his almost 3 years of interagation... Telling a true story of the Cold War the film takes us into the world of international espionage and shows how misinformation, self intrest and bueracratic in fighting all conspire to bury the truth. Tommy Lee Jones is great as Daley who sees Nosenko as a threat to the CIA (Yuri Nosenko almost certainly was a double agent), but the stand outs are Josef Sommer as James Angelton the legandary CIA Spy Hunter who never seems to loose his cool rational and methodical method of sniffing out spys and Oleg Rudnik as Yuri Nosenko who never once hints at Yuri's true nature. If you like spy thrillers this is for you.
