It is human nature to want to celebrate our successes, to want to promote the self, to have others know how great we are. I say it is human nature, because I want to feel better about myself. It might not be the case.
This film puts all of that into the bin, teaches one about discretion, and also about the greater good. Tonight, I learnt that I could never be a spy (or a vampire slayer for that matter). I loved it. Thank you, President Clinton, for declassifying this case. Thank you, Ben Affleck, for making the film. Thank you, Tony Mendez, for your many years of service, your courage, and your discretion.
