Sunday Moment of Zen: Mission: Impossible-Ghost Protocol and the Dean Martin Prison Break

Just a short one this week. I am inordinately fond of the Mission: Impossible movies, especially 3. I’m delighted to see Rogue Nation, the new one, seems to be maintaining the increasingly mischievous bent of the series too. This sequence, from the opening of Ghost Protocol, is probably the best example of that. Silent comedy, close quarters punching, Simon Pegg being magnificent and, of course, Dean Martin in a Russian prison. Oh and a beautiful, offhand justification for the fuse motif. Glorious stuff and your Sunday Moment of Zen.
