The Spy Who Came In From The Cold

The original Tinker Taylor Soldier Spy and Smiley's People, from BBC, I think

IPCRESS File and its sequels

These are among my all-time favorites, and I have some on DVD.

The death of Stalin was hilarious!
Atomic blond had that particular Berliner feel to it.

Speaking of a Berlin-type feel, check out Kleo on Netflix.
I wasn't prepared to like it but, it has a Wes Anderson aesthetic to it, being a bit off-beat and darkly comedic.

Looks great, I'm definitely going to watch this one.

Love the gratuitous use of a Makarov!

The most important one, Rocky IV, in which Rocky Balboa ushered in glasnost and ended the Cold War.

War Games. Sure it was kinda silly but it was the dawn of the PC and the main characters choosing a missile launch on Seattle (and Vegas) in hindsight seems rather prophetic given the cluster the city has become.



EDIT: One movie I remember from the 80s that I thought was pretty good was Countdown to Looking Glass. I think it was a Showtime or HBO production but it's been such a long time since I saw it. I do remember Gingrich was in it as an interviewee, though.

Another was 2010: The Year We Made Contact. Sci-fi layered over political USA/USSR turmoil. I liked the film at the time, but like War Games it's kind of silly too and really not a worthy sequel to 2001: A Space Odyssey.

And then there's Charlie Wilson's War, a flick that loosely tells the story of the funding of our future enemies in Afghanistan to defeat the Soviets in THAT war and in turn ultimately bring the end to the Cold War.
