manchurian candidate

last night the wife and I watched jonathan demme's depiction of the 1962 classic The Manchurian Candidate

went into the movie with really no expectations….
knowing the basic premise of the movie we begin to see the depiction of power and corruption possible in american politics…
the movie was directed and orchastrated in such a way that you began to question whether what the characters were experiencing were true or whether the characters were just dillusional…
a very good, suspenseful, and well acted movie…
there were some questions about logistical things you would expect to not have happened considering the agencies invovled, but hey, all in all, not a bad flick…

i would give it 3.75 stars (out of 5)….
