Nobody shoots people through windows quite like Dutch photographer-turned-filmmaker Anton Corbijn. After coming out of the gate with the splendid Ian Curtis biopic 'Control' and the gorgeous but muted 'The American,' his adaptation of John Le Carre's recent novel, 'A Most Wanted Man,' suffers from his intentional coldness and precision. Recollecting on the film reminds me that it is an interesting yarn, but while watching it I was unable to shake that it was so ... freaking ... slow.
A Most Wanted Man
Director Anton Corbijn's 'A Most Wanted Man,' adapted from 'Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy' author John le Carre's novel, will soon be released in the US by way of Lionsgate, but for now we have to settle for a Spanish-subtitled trailer of this psychological thriller.
