The Company




I was researching Operation Gladio and James Jesus Angleton and came across this mini series called The Company on Youtube. You know, it's not bad at all. The character acting is good but the scripts don't suck and that goes a long way for me. There's a lot of love-in-the-CIA theme but somehow the actors transcend the obvious. Michael Keaton plays James Jesus Angleton in this dramatization though my favourite theme from around this time is the Cambridge homosexual double and triple agents without whom things would have gone far to straight forward given the string pullers of the intelligence agencies are extraordinarily venal. Regrettably most spies don't actually know that.

Rome and Birdcage Walk etc.
