The International

Much like 2007’s Michael Clayton, The International is about one man’s quest to get to the bottom of a conspiracy. In this case, that man is renegade Interpol agent Louis Salinger (Clive Owen), who’s been trying to convict a Luxembourg bank of dabbling in organized crime. Salinger brings in his New York-based higher-up, Eleanor Whitman (Naomi Watts), to help him track the evidence, first to New York then to Milan and Istanbul, before he can get any final answers. There’s never a dull moment, and even though Watts and Owen don’t get quite enough screen time together, that’s a minor quibble with this thinking man’s thriller. HHH
