A Most Wanted Man

Philip Seymour Hoffman plays Gunter who heads a small German counter-terrorism team. A man (Issa), half Chechan / half Russian, has appeared in Germany to follow up on his father’s fortune. The movie is fascinating – one whose story line is clear at the beginning, becomes very absorbing as it plays out, and provides an ending that makes you go back and play back the movie again in your mind. The story is complex – you are never quite sure what to make of the intentions of Issa. The acting is wonderful, especially by Philip Seymour Hoffman (a reminder of what a talent he is) and the man who plays Issa. Big thumbs up for a movie that is much like Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy in its masterful execution of story and great acting; those who are fans of John Le Carre novels should really like the film. (2014; 4 Stars)
