I love movies. I love writing about them. Hope you like reading what I write.
Phillip Seymour Hoffmann’s career was ended too soon, but with a truly brilliant closing lead role.
In my favourite spy movie I have yet seen, he stars alongside Rachel McAdams and Willem Defoe in a race to not only protect Germany from the threat of terrorism, but, if possible, make sure justice is carried out too.
While watching this film, you feel right there with these characters. Every conversation, every scene feels like it was recorded from situations involving real spies.
In the second of this generation’s John Le Carre adaptations, this proves that if Hollywood ever runs out of other source material to exploit, they have a fresh supply of genius stuff waiting for them to turn into masterpieces.
Please watch this movie.
