Ray professes a love for 1970s cinema and points out a subtle homage, early on, to one of his favorite films from that era, All the President’s Men. The director says that he was pressured by the studio to speed up the tempo of the first third of the movie but he didn’t want to cut out footage that told us about Hanssen’s character. O’Neill talks about how the filmmakers nailed the details of his life back then – how his apartment looked, etc. Watching it now really takes him back to that time in his life. Ray often talks about various aspects of the film while O’Neill offers his recollections of what went down from his perspective.

Ray talks about the usual stuff like the script, the actors, the locations in Canada, the music, the sets etc. The real stuff comes from O’Neill. He talks about the operation and you get fantastic insights from him. Working for the FBI is also a topic. The track is great. 10 out of 10.
