movie directed by Tony Scott. It stars Will Smith
as a DC
labor lawyer who unwittingly holds key evidence to a crime
that was committed by a high-ranking NSA

plays Brill, an ultra-paranoid
and skilled ex-NSA spook
who works from a copper wire mesh

is basically a more modern North By Northwest
. It also reminds me of Coppola
's The Conversation
), in which Gene Hackman plays a quiet surveillance expert who becomes obsessed with the couple he is tracking.
