2014 (UK / USA / Germany) (Thriller)
Starring: Philip Seymour Hoffman, Rachel McAdams, Daniel Brühl
Director: Anton Corbijn
When a half-Chechen, half-Russian, brutally tortured immigrant turns up in Hamburg’s Islamic community, laying claim to his father’s ill-gotten fortune, both German and US security agencies take a close interest: as the clock ticks down and the stakes rise, the race is on to establish this most wanted man’s true identity – oppressed victim or destruction-bent extremist?
It stars Philip Seymour Hoffman in one of his final performances. A Most Wanted Man is smart, subtle, and steadily absorbing and proves once again that John le Carre books make for sharp, thoughtful thrillers.
