A Most Wanted Man

Philip Seymour Hoffman is a German spy tasked by morally dubious superiors to track down a suspicious Chechen-Russian immigrant on the run in Hamburg. Based on the counter-terrorist novel by John le Carré (Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy) about the sins committed in the name of national security. From director Anton Corbijn (Control).

"Pressured by his German and American colleagues to capture and interrogate his suspect as a Muslim terrorist, Bachmann instead asks for more time to carefully track Issa's (Grigoriy Dobrygin) movements and his relationship with his German immigration lawyer, Annabel Richter (Rachel McAdams). Using his secret contacts and keen skill, Bachmann uncovers a connection between a world-renowned Muslim philanthropist and a terrorist group and devises a plan to use Issa and Annabel in a brilliant ploy to expose the scheme." (Sundance Film Festival)

Intelligence is both the subject and the approach... a meticulously plotted, steadily absorbing drama that casts a cynical yet compassionate eye on the complexities of counterterrorist work in the post-9/11 era.

It's a professional old-school espionage outing, intricate as clockwork and acted with relish by the ever-watchable Hoffman.

A cold film that examines its characters from a clinical distance, but its iciness gives way to raw emotion in a powerful final sequence.

Hoffman’s portrait of a smart and seedy old German spy dominates this atmospheric and subdued adaptation.
