A Most Wanted Man

amostwantedmanA Chechen refugee arrives in Hamburg illegally; he’s believed to be a terrorist, but intelligence agent G√ľnther Bachmann (Philip Seymour Hoffman) sees a chance to catch bigger fish. Anton Corbijn delivers another spy thriller after The American (2010) and he’s well-suited to portray the stylishly gray world of John le Carr√©. This adaptation depicts the challenges of terrorist-hunting and turf war between different interests. Cold as ice and very deliberately told, with unattractive German locations, but credible. Hoffman is magnificent in one of his last parts, as the chain-smoking, ruffled agent.

2014-Britain-U.S.-Germany. 122 min. Color. Widescreen. Directed by¬†Anton Corbijn. Novel: John le Carr√©. Cast: Philip Seymour Hoffman (G√ľnther Bachmann), Rachel McAdams (Annabel Richter), Willem Dafoe (Tommy Brue), Robin Wright, Grigoriy Dobrygin, Derya Alabora‚Ķ Daniel Br√ľhl.

Trivia: Co-producer Stephen Cornwell is the son of le Carr√©. Amy Adams, Jessica Chastain and Carey Mulligan were allegedly considered for McAdams’s role.
