    I just watched it last night. I have to agree… excellent movie.

    Dan, if I’m remembering them correctly, wasn’t the notable thing about the interrogation scenes the irony that they were at once far less forceful/physical than the techniques the Bush Administration has authorized (and even more so the additional ones it would like), yet also far more effective?

    Do you mean that the techniques were far more effective in the fictional world of the movies than they would be in real life?

    Indeed, a great film, and Ulrich Mühe is charming as the Stasi agent-turned good guy. It’s really too bad that this was his last film.

    I watched this movie last week and thoroughly enjoyed it. I highly recommend it. It’s a bit long (2:20), but I’m not sure what I would have cut.
