Favourite Espionage/Spy FILM of all time?
 
Choose ONE single movie

I like the old ones with Michael Caine or the old bond movies with Sean Connery. But to pick ONE of all time it has got to be:

The Bourne Supremacy

Pull2Open 23-04-2013 22:00

Any of the Harry Palmer films but The Iprcress File is the best!

I know you think it's cool to post film threads here, but please do give the Movies forum a chance.

Charade, with Audrey Hepburn and Cary Grant.

North by Northwest, with Cary Grant and Eva Marie Saint.

The Manchurian Candidate, with Angela Lansbury and Frank Sinatra.

Ah, chill out dude. Where's the harm? The threads will probably be moved in due course, but still...

He's created at least four film threads within an hour. One? Fair enough, but four? Please.

The spy who came in from the cold.

No car chases. No violence of note.

Just really really good.

I can't chose between Goldfinger and The Spy Who Loved Me. Skyfall gets an honourable mention too.

Mr Teacake 23-04-2013 22:47

I've always had a soft spot for The Odessa File.

Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy. Gary Oldman is a legend!

I prefer the TV series:)

Bourne, the only realistic spy type pic

Eddie Badger 24-04-2013 05:24

The Ipcress File
The Spy Who Came in From The Cold
The Quiller Memorandum
From Russia With Love

cessna 24-04-2013 08:06

"Day of the Jackel"


starring Edward Fox

Assassination rather than esponiage - but absolutely superb !

ruddiger 24-04-2013 08:57

Lot's of those mentioned above plus

Spy Game

Ancient IDTV 24-04-2013 14:14

GoldenEye

but imo the best of the genre is to be found in tv series such as Callan, The Sandbaggers, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, and Smiley's People.

I like spy game - I'm still not sure I understand the ending properly.

Rorschach 25-04-2013 23:56

Three Days of the Condor

I admit that calling it a spy film is stretching it slightly, but The Spy Who Loved Me is the very best Bond film.
