Bridge Of Spies (2015)

I have a confession to make, I believe I am the only film blogger in the world who did not run to the theatre to see Spectre. With the James Bond franchise being an ever present yet relatively underwhelming presence in my life, I decided I would instead get my fix of Winter spy cinema…
