Top 10 CIA Movies

Hardly a year goes by without a juicy international incident involving the CIA. Plotting to overthrow foreign governments. Using illegal interrogation techniques on suspected terrorists. Secret assassination squads.syriana

With so many real-life scandals, it’s no wonder that screenwriters love to feature protagonists from “The Company.”  With that said, my current Top 10 list features not only spy thrillers about the CIA (based-on-true-story films Breach, Charlie Wilson’s War and the Good Shepard), but also fictional accounts, as well as a CIA farce (Burn After Reading). Enjoy:

  1. Syriana (2005)
  2. Breach (2007)
  3. Charlie Wilson’s War (2007)
  4. Clear and Present Danger (1994)
  5. The Hunt for Red October (1990)
  6. The Bourne Supremacy (2004)
  7. JFK (1991)
  8. Burn After Reading (2008)
  9. The Good Shepard (2008)
  10. Mission Impossible (1996)
