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

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

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.

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