Summertime is movie time, and this week we’re talking about Charlize Theron’s new spy thriller, ATOMIC BLONDE! She plays Lorraine Broughton, an MI6 agent sent to investigate another agent’s murder in Berlin during the final days before the Wall falls. There are the usual spy machinations, but let’s talk about what really makes this movie special: the fight scenes, the fashion, and the soundtrack. All three are fantastic!
Earlier this month we covered THE COLDEST CITY, which was the inspiration for this film. How does the movie compare to the book, and how did they expand a 176-page graphic novel into a two-hour movie? And does the old adage of the book always being better than the movie hold true?
