[to Caroline about Eberlin]
I do believe you two would have gone on well together. You haven't got a past, and he hasn't got a future. None at all.

While the story is admittedly somewhat confusing, this is definitely not the disaster that Maltin et al. would have you believe it is. It's got some plot issues, and is in fact a bit baffling by the end, but these weaknesses are far outweighed by the sleek mid-60's visuals, the cool location shots of Berlin, and the whole spy-in-an-atmosphere-of-paranoia-and-dread vibe (ie., like the Prisoner). Definitely worth a rent if you're into spy movies and/or paranoia.
p.s. the ever so mod and swinging soundtrack music is by Quincy Jones!
