I saw "The Good Shepherd" a while ago.
The thing that has me puzzled is this:
Although I have raved and I have made a big
fuss about how much I just LOVED the moves
"Babel", "The Departed", and "The Good Shepherd,"
out of the three, WHY or WHY does the movie
called "The Good Shepherd," seem to haunt me?
Sometimes when I am doing nothing, I find myself
thinking about the little details, like the bus
that went by. Yes, I remember how they hissed when
the door would open. Or I might recall the lamps.
Or I might recall how the halls and offices looked
inside the government buildings. I looked at those
old cars, the dresses, coats, hats, shoes and many
more details that were so carefully used.
The plastic, stuffy, cold and almost mechanical
body language, facial expressions and mannerisms.
And atlast I can confess to someone that the part
where the woman is falling down, down from out of
that plane....I found to be so very beautiful, as
an unforgettable piece of art and camera work. It
was amazing.(Not the act itself) but the filming
of it was sensational. The movement. The colors.
The angles of the shot. Just wonderful.
The love making scenes were great, because it show
that the man did have....what is the word? Not just
feelings, but passion. Passion for a woman's body, and passion for his work, maybe. Devotion, too.
Dedication for his work and family.
Daddy loves us. He just doesn't know how to show it. He takes care of us, so he does love us. He
just keeps it all on the inside.
Silence is gold, so I will close now.
"The Good Shepherd" will stand the test of time.
That is my opinion.
It frighttens me...and I can not figure out why it
frightens me, people will write about this movie
and I will read and have it explained to me, and I
will say, "yes, of course. That is exactly the

I ran out of time, and so I didn't get to finish.
So, now that I am back, I must say once again, that
I really liked "The Good Shepherd," very much.
If you think that Angelina's character was frustrated with Matt Damon's character, and not
being able to see inside him....How about me????
Here I am obsessing. And I mean on a daily basis!
The CIA is very, very, and I repeat, very secretive.
Their agents are like puffs of smoke....in the wind.
I thought that they were glamorous, when I was a young thing, but after seeing this movie...I can
only shudder. James Bond, agent 007 did the same
thing that Matt Damons character did in this movie,
but this was more serious, and the movie left me
with fear, and a sick feeling in my stomach.
The CIA now scares the wholly crap out of me.
I have been at a dance of two, in my youth, and I
have asked my dance partner, "and what do YOU do
for a living?" Once in a while they would say that
they worked for the CIA. BAck then, I would giggle
and think that THAT was sooooo sweet.
Those people are not to be played with.

I was very disappointed with the movie. What was the plot ? Was there a political point to it ? I was told it was about the CIA and how it operates and what our country has done around the world. If by watching this movie It is now news to anyone than Hello!!. The cast was fantastic and the feel of the movie made me believe it could of been something special, but never got close to it. My friend and I went to the 6:20 showing today monday.
There were 9 other people in the theatre. By the end only us two and a single were still left when the movie finished. I'm not sure why the other's left, maybe the running time or some reason but I can't remember eight people leaving any movie I've been to ever and that includes some very crowded theatre's and also some horrible bombs.

The Godd Sheppard is not meant to be a political film...Robert Deniro explained that. its a layered film..with many storyilines intertwined. Its the story of how the CIA started...frankly the movie makes you paranoid.. Hell isn't the pres. tapping our phones now?

this was a great movie,one that de niro worked on for several yrs actually living among the cia community, meeting with agents all over the world interveiwing the real agents in the communist party as well, its a true story,true history. So it should be veiwed as an hitorical one, rather than just another spy movie from someones imagination

What did Mangie win for this? Anything? Learned how to fool a man into thinking a pregnancy was his fault by pouncing on him one time and then the dates don't match up. Oops.

Are they like Edward in "New Moon"....a mirage that turns into vapor when Bella touches him?
Jake just wasn't hot enough even with his six pack abs and Edward was so Albino next to him
and very skinny. I can't believe Bella wasn't played by JOLIE. She is so YOUNG and ALL.
Bhwa ha ha. Jolie needs to retire like Mickey Rourke's ex-wife, Carre Otis.
