Bridge Of Spies
"During the Cold War, an American lawyer is recruited to defend an arrested Soviet spy in court, and then help the CIA facilitate an exchange of the spy for the Soviet captured American U2 spy plane pilot, Francis Gary Powers."
Written by the Coen Brothers and Matt Charman, Spielberg brings us a great movie where he shows, again, the reasons why he is one of the greatest storytellers nowadays.
The first act of the movie could be considered a little bit slow in the way that it is kind of vague but once the movie enters the second act, it finds the flow.
I personally think that the whole movie is perfect as I like "lawyers" movies a lot and it reminded me a bit of "Zodiac", directed by David Fincher in its tone.
The actors are absolutely great as in every single movie that Spielberg has directed and Kaminski shines completely through Tom Hanks' journey.
Regarding Bridge Of Spies' cinematography, I have to say that some moments in the movie were very similar to "J. Edgard", photographed by Tom Stern and as I enjoyed that movie loads, it was something extra to add to the visual enjoyment!
Ah! I almost forgot, the Hawks have not been used as well as Kaminski used them in this movie ever.
Amazing use of the wide lenses in some moments.
It was a pity not to see David Devlin's name on the credits though!
Have a good day.
