Praise For Cooper In Breach

Chris Cooper as Robert Hanssen in Breach"Breach", the story of traitor Robert Hanssen, which stars Chris Cooper and Ryan Phillipe; directed by Billy Ray and written by Ray, Adam Mazer, and William Rotko, is getting some very fine ink -- all of which praise Cooper's performance.

Here is Manohla Dargis' take, Kenneth Turan's and David Edelstein's reviews, and my favorite of the bunch, Steve Inskeep's interview with Cooper. (8 min.)

I especially like the way Cooper keeps Inskeep (one of NPR's senior reporters and a veteran interviewer) just a bit off balance. It would seem Cooper has very much internalized some tinker/tailor pyschological orientation.
