Below are a few political thriller movies that I think you’d enjoy watching. Most are available on Netflix or another streaming service if you have access to those.
“With Steven Spielberg directing and Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep starring, it seemed pretty clear from the start that The Post was going to be a good flick. It delivers on that promise, turning the real-life story of The Washington Post‘s Pentagon Papers story into a thrilling film that recalls All the President’s Men‘s themes of journalistic courage and executive power.” – Murder & Mayhem
“Syriana’s politics take viewers globe-trotting from Texas to the Middle East. Connecting the disparate settings is the oil business, which serves as the driving force in a plot full of intrigue, action, and political tension. George Clooney took home an Oscar for his role. The strong cast also includes Matt Damon.” – Murder & Mayhem
Three Days of the Condor
“This political thriller is a true classic. The action lurches to a start when a CIA researcher returns from a lunch break to find his comrades murdered. Filled with paranoia and thrills, Three Days of the Condor is superbly acted by a star-studded cast that includes Robert Redford and Faye Dunaway.” – Murder & Mayhem
