Bridge of Spies **
An American lawyer is recruited by the CIA during the Cold War to help rescue a pilot detained in the Soviet Union.
Dogged political drama from its director that only partially engrosses: Filled with classical compositions and cinematic outflow, it works best as a model pattern for his current sensibilities and his ongoing fascination with the stamina it requires for the average human being to save another.
