Directed by Jonathan Demme | 2004

With Denzel Washington, Meryl Streep, Liev Schreiber

Demme reimagines the Cold War classic for the Bush II years. Liev Schreiber is the Gulf War soldier turned vice presidential nominee, Denzel Washington is the Army major who suspects he’s a brainwashed sleeper agent, and a marvelous Meryl Streep is the nefarious matriarch orchestrating the whole thing. It’s a thrilling, audacious update that’s even timelier in our conspiracy-consumed age.
