The Insider

This was a bit of an odd movie to watch.  We got top-notch Hollywood actors dramatizing (and probably over-dramatizing) events that already happened, not to mention the viewer probably has pretty good knowledge about the events.  The 150+ minute run-time goes by easy enough, although I have to admit that at different times I had trouble figuring out what new characters were added or what was happening.  As always it is good to see Pacino as himself and not a caricature of himself.
