    THE GOOD SHEPHERD (2006) a ROBERT DE NIRO FILM (Directed and Produced by De Niro, and starring as GENERAL BILL SULLIVAN)



    The tumultuos early history and the following 40 years of the Central Intelligence Agency is viewed through the prism of one man`s life in The Good Shepherd, an epic drama starring Academy Award Winners Matt Damon, Angelina Jolie and Robert De Niro and directed by De Niro.

    Edward Wilson (Matt Damon) understands the value of secrecy-discretion and commitment to honor have been embedded in him since childhood. As an eager, optimistic student at Yale, he is recruited to join the secret society Skull and Bones, a brotherhood and breeding ground for future world leaders.

    Wilson`s acute mind, spoitless reputation and sincere belief in American values render him a prime candidate for a career in intelligence, and he is soon recruited to work for the OSS (the precursor of the CIA) during WWII.

    As one of the elite founders of the CIA, working in the heart of an organization where duplicity is required and nothing is taken at face value. Edward`s idealism is steadily eroded by a growing suspicious nature, reflective of a world settling in the long paranoia of the Cold War. As his methods are adopted as standard operating procedure, Wilson develops into one of the Agency`s veteran opeatives, all the while combating his KBG counterpart. However, his steely dedication to his country comes at an ever-increasing price. Not even his wife Clover (Angelina Jolie) or his beloved son can divert Wilson from a path that will force him to sacrifice everything in pursuit of this job.

    I hope this one can compensate the horrible movies DeNiro made. (Showtime, Analyze this/that, Godsend)

    But I will see this just for Pesci's comeback anyway.

    This may sound pointless but Jolie doesn't look hot in those

    Not that it matters
