Reviewed on 3/26/2010...
The pacing is a bit slow by today's standards, but this is still an interesting look into a "true" story (I didn't research just how true) about two American friends who sell secrets to the USSR.

The Falcon and the Snowman
Arnita D. Brown | USA | 02/27/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Christopher Boyce a young All-American man whose job as a guard for sensitive documents shatters his faith in his country and leads him to a sometimes comic, sometimes chilling sideline as a spy for the Soviets, aided by his scruffy buddy, Daulton it can't last, though, and the consequences are tremendous for Boyce and his family. This movie is a true thriller/drama. There is no eye candy to speak of, but the story is so compelling and the acting so superb, you wouldn't want to miss it. Dark, disturbing, and outstanding."
