the bad shepard

in his third directorial feature, robert deniro tells the secretive tale of the birth of the cia. though a good book, this movie falls short in many areas (At 2 hours and 43 minutes its tough to sit through). matt damon excels as edward wilson, a rigid agent whos family life is a distant second to his work world. when the two get tangled he falls further into the the dark hole that has become his life. this would have been a great miniseries, but as a full length film its too long to be fluid. the skull and bones scenes are pretty freaky though. angelina jolie-b, matt damon b+, robert deniro-c/c+. i was looking forward to this one for a while
