  • From CNN's list of the best films of the year:

    The Good Shepherd
    Maybe this is the movie "Godfather III" should have been. De Niro's account of the foundation of the CIA is utterly absorbing, a study of the insidious influence of paranoia and mistrust in the corridors of power during the height of the Cold War. Damon heads up the heavyweight cast in a major picture that hasn't been given its due.

  • A year end summary by Robert Osborne of the Hollywood Reporter:

    Moviewise, it was a year also enriched by remarkable double-headers: "History Boys" on Broadway and on film, both towering triumphs, both filled with fresh faces, dazzling words and ideas from its playwright and screenwriter Alan Bennett; Matt Damon in "Departed" and "The Good Shepherd," each of his performances giving ample proof why directors the caliber of Scorsese and Robert De Niro would pick Damon to star in pet projects;...

  • From the Us Weekly review of The Good Shepherd (3.5/4):

    But Damon — who grows more silent as the film unfolds, lending heft to the few words he utters — is magnetic. The intricate script may challenge viewers’ patience. Still, the carefully conceived thriller proves once again that De Niro’s not just an A-list star, but an ace director, as well.

    Talk about a bad picture (in terms of face, not body, of course ;D). His face seems to say "Why the hell would you want a picture of me jogging?" It's a perfectly logical reaction, but still not one you want the pap catching you do. It just reminds you what a bizarre reality people like Matt have to live in.

    On a more pleasant note, it's great to read more and more positive reviews of TGS, especially since it had a less than stellar opening weekend. I wish I could review the film myself, but it has yet to come to my area *pout*.

    The Good Shepherd is actually doing surprisingly well box-office wise. It's already over $21 million, and should hold up this weekend with no new major releases.

    It doesn't open near me til late February, so I share your pain.

    If anybody is able to watch the film and can tell me a list of particular crew credits, could you email me? Or maybe somebody has a printed full crew list? Thanks.
