I loved this film. It’s big-budget Hollywood film making at its best – script, cast, direction, production, all top notch. Put Tom Hanks with Philip Seymour Hoffman and it’s hard to go wrong. Amy Adams was a standout too, as was the dialogue. (Well, of course. Look who wrote it: Aaron Sorkin.) What I didn’t like was the knowledge (Monday-morning quarterbacking, I know) that these embattled mujahideen we were helping would later be part of al Qaeda.
