A Most Wanted Man

Rated R 121 min. 2014


Based on a 2008 John le Carré novel, the film is set in Hamburg, where past intelligence failures haunt veteran anti-terror field agent Günther Bachmann (Philip Seymour Hoffman). When Chechen refugee Issa Korpov (Grigoriy Dobrygin) arrives in the city, Bachmann's antennae twitch. Karpov takes shelter in Hamburg's Muslim community and lays claim to an inheritance of 10 million Euros at a bank run by Tommy Brue (Willem Dafoe). Scenes are carefully assembled and sequenced to provide the audience with what it needs to know—and nothing more. When the double-crosses land, the impact is blunted by lingering ambiguities both moral and narrative.
