'A Most Wanted Man' Movie Review

It's impossible to watch the character anchoring Anton Corbijn's cool, clear-eyed film version of "A Most Wanted Man" without forgetting the fate of the bleary-eyed but fantastically vital actor who plays him.

Philip Seymour Hoffman's last serious film is a thin spy drama

More than 100 minutes into "A Most Wanted Man," a CIA officer asks, "What are we trying to achieve here?" Viewers can be forgiven for replying, "If you don't know, why should we?" This atmospheric, cool-looking but gimpy thriller based on a John le CarrA© novel makes "Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy" look like "22 Jump Street."

A Most Wanted Man Movie Review

What is it like to be a spy? Some cynics say that it's a game indulged by its proponents; that our spies know their spies and vice versa, and the groups, however hostile their countries to each other, simply exchange information freely, thereby keeping their jobs.
