American Made - believable only because its real

This is one of those stories that pass the reasonability test only because they are real. Tom Cruise's "American Made" is the unbelievable but true story of Barry Seal, an American pilot who becomes  embroiled in all sorts of international crime and espionage. This is such a great crime-caper, the kinds we so rarely get these days. It is just so much fun to just sit back and watch as layers and layers of insanity get piled on top of each other and you must suspend your disbelief because you know this (or something really close to this) actually happened. Reminded me to Charlie Wilson's War - another Great American intelligence film where the consequences of seemingly simple actions are so profound.
