Two movies...

Body of Lies:
Very taut and intense thriller (if you can call it that). It crosses cultural barriers and operates on multiple geographies - and throw in hi tech surveillance into the mix. It is very well made, but keeps reminding why we humans are so screwed up when it comes to living together peacefully! If you decide to watch it, a warning about expletives and violence!

Enemy of the State:
Another hi tech movie. Just realizing as I type that the above movie was directed by his brother. Again, rips off like a race car and never stops. It does make a relevant and interesting point about where you draw a line between security and privacy protection when it comes to surveillance. And this was 1998! Surely, we'll be seeing more of this in the coming years. Spying is inevitable as technology makes this more easier and we will have to find a way to respect the individual amidst all this!
