Rogue NationThis movie mustered real surprises. It also felt like a spy story rather than an action film. So I enjoyed it.

I’m struck though by how sexless and how passionless the whole thing feels when I think back to it. It’s as if the movie can be read as an allegory for Tom Cruise’s body: finely tuned, machine-like, and operating at peak capacity. A spectacle of ordinary realities — age, fatigue, softness — denied.
