The Good German (4 stars)

The Good German image“U.S. Army correspondent Jake Geismar (George Clooney) gets caught in a web of intrigue involving ex-flame Lena (Cate Blanchett) in Steven Soderbergh‘s drama set in post-World War II Berlin. Lena’s missing husband is hunted by U.S. and Russian military, and in desperation, she looks to Jake for a way out. Tension mounts as Jake discovers Lena’s been keeping secrets and the black market dealings of his shady driver (Tobey Maguire) come into play.”

Geoff’s Comments: Surprisingly good. A wonderful homage to film noir, complete with the visuals, score, plot twists. Excellent!
