The Spy Who Fell to Earth (Netflix)

I’ve made it a point to stay relatively uneducated about global politics. (So much of what you read is bullshit or propaganda, and the rest will rile you up about problems you can’t solve.) I began watching The Spy Who Fell to Earth because I liked the title. It turns out to be a somewhat disappointing documentary about Ashraf Marwan, an Egyptian billionaire that was either a spy for Israel or a double-agent for Egypt. In 90 minutes, you don’t get an answer. But you do get an indirect summary education about the 5-Day and Yom Kippur wars.
