A list of the best CIA movies. These are films that focus on the United States Central Intelligence Agency, or its CIA agents. We've tried to include all of the best CIA films on this list, but if you believe we missed one please feel free to add to the list yourself. With its intrigue, espionage, and cloak & dagger politics, the CIA and its spies & operatives are a perfect setting and cast of characters for filmmaking and storytelling. Spy dramas have been a favorite among movie goers for decades. Let's face it, spies make great characters. And when it comes to the CIA, well, even James Bond had his CIA liaison, Felix Leiter. This list includes all genres, although most are action, drama, or thrillers. If you enjoy spy movies, then you're bound to enjoy many of the films on this list.

List Criteria: Movies most feature the CIA.
