Engaging and thoughtful, the movie asks a lot from its viewers but ultimately pays off on an interesting concept.
Excellent spy film. One of the last films PSH starred in, and he totally brings it.
Brilliant performance from Hoffman. A slow, but intriguing crime drama.
Solid political thriller. R.I.P. Hoffman. An underrated movie in his catalog. And the ending sums everything up perfectly and surprises you
A real spy tale, with real characters, and a real anti-climatic ending.
Lovely and sad and everything you could possibly want from LeCarre adaptation. Completely nails down his aesthetic and uses it masterfully
Great themes and Hoffman’s acting is, as always, incredible. But it’s also slow and complicated.
Slow pace psychological spy thriller. Very great movie and Philip Seymour Hoffman plays an amazing part, as he always did.
Solid with great acting. Keeps you on the edge of your seat. I'd say it's a mix between the Bourne movies and Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy.
Great understated espionage stuff. Not for the action/gadget fans, but stacked with good writing and interesting, nuanced complexities.
