Day of the Jackal

Very good movie about an attempted assassination of De Gaulle. After the OAS, a french terrorist group, fails in an assasination attempt they pay an outside assassin (codename:Jackal) to do the job. I won’t give away the ending, but De Gaulle Dies in the end. There was a scene where the “good” guys torture an OAS agent and obtain vital information. I don’t think that there is any evidence that torture works. And the more important point was that torture is immoral. As a dramatic movie though it was one of the best I’ve seen recently.
