The Good German (movie)

Boy, was this one bad. We couldn't finish watching it. Of course most movies made of novels conflate characters and change plot threads, but having read the book so recently, both of us had trouble tolerating the changes which--as far as we could tell--were made for no good reason.

So, in spite of sporting a wonderful cast (headed by my idea of a Cary Grant successor: George Clooney) and an even better director (Steven Soderbergh), this was impossible to watch.

Ah well.
