Even though I’ve seen it over and over, and I know every scene and every line, it still doesn’t get boring. I was trying to imagine what an ordinary (non-Benedict-fan) viewer would think of it. Every time I thought “this is where they’ll get bored”, the plot takes an unexpected turn. They show us the same types of scenes just enough times for us to see what their spy routine was like, and then they move on. I still wouldn’t be able to explain anything about the Cold War and bombs, but I know what these two men did to stop it from happening.
