A Most Wanted Man

TV Times - - Film Guide - Film4 9.00pm - 11.25pm

An ab­sorb­ing and stylish es­pi­onage drama

Philip Sey­mour Hoff­man is typ­i­cally excellent as a world-weary spy­mas­ter in this John le Carré adap­ta­tion, which sadly be­came his last com­pleted movie. As the dogged head of an anti-ter­ror unit based in Ham­burg, he is try­ing to de­ter­mine whether an il­le­gal im­mi­grant (Grig­oriy Do­bry­gin) is re­ally an in­no­cent refugee or a mil­i­tant ji­hadist. While it lacks the sus­pense of 2011’s

the film is still an in­trigu­ing tale set in a cloak-anddag­ger world. Dir: An­ton Cor­bijn 2014, 15, 145min
