There’s no denying spy thrillers are one of the most popular movie and TV genres these days. But we often forget that international spies and espionage are very real. How much do we actually know about the art and history of espionage? Is what we see in the movies actually accurate?
Lucky for us, a new documentary on Netflix is tackling exactly that. Called Spycraft, the 8-part series does a deep dive into the ways different countries have been attempting to (in many cases successfully) gather information and intelligence from other countries. And did we mention it’s already landed the number eight spot on Netflix’s top ten movies list after just six days on the streaming platform?
We’re not going to lie, while the series is interesting, it’s also pretty terrifying.
