The single greatest political thriller of all time comes in the form of a pop-culture realisation of the assassination of a relatively obscure Greek politician. An absurd statement, certainly, but a sincere one nonetheless.

You have to watch closely to follow the plot of this political thriller, which moves very quickly, but the documentary style of story-telling is engrossing and thrilling.

A darkly-powerful French drama full of intrigue, spice, scandal, and action. This espionage thriller will be mentioned forever as one of the greatest French films of all time. Though, I must say, even for an older film, this was sickeningly slow and much too convoluted to do much good for modern audiences.
