A Most Wanted Man
Dir. Anton Corbjin. 2014, 122 mins. 35mm. With Philip Seymour Hoffman, Rachel McAdams, Daniel Brühl. Based on John le Carré’s novel, A Most Wanted Man is a contemporary thriller about an immigrant who turns up in Hamburg’s Islamic community, laying claim to his father’s ill-gotten fortune. In his final starring role, Hoffman gives one of his best, and most unlikely, performances as a German intelligence officer. John le Carré was initially skeptical about the casting. “For the first few minutes of listening to him, I thought ‘Crikey.’ Then, gradually, he did what only the greatest actors can do. He made his voice the only authentic one, the lonely one, the odd one out, the one you depended on amid all the others.”
