Written for the screen by Andrew Bovell
Directed by Anton Corbijn
In Anton Corbijn’s foreign espionage thriller A Most Wanted Man, the late Philip Seymour Hoffman lends his take on an unconventional looking German intelligence agent, one without the usual dashing attributes associated with cinematic spies. Although sprinkled with cerebral-minded intrigue and conducting its atmospheric tension in methodical fashion, A Most Wanted Man feels relentlessly sluggish in its execution to live up to its labored political-coated drama. This low-energy, plodding spy showcase has its isolated highlights in sleek suspense, but fails to drive home any genuine revelations about its touchy subject matter regarding counter-intelligence suspicion and terrorist paranoia. Despite solid and committed performances, it’s a slow burn of a thriller that simply lingers without fortifying any convincing punch.
Corbijn’s intelligence operative narrative is based upon a John le Carré novel. »

Seemingly tailor-made for the role of Harry Potter, the young actor went from complete unknown to superstar overnight -- and he'd barely hit puberty. Since his days in the blockbuster franchise, Radcliffe has starred on Broadway and in indie movies, earning critical acclaim and shedding his child star image along the way. This fall, the (still) young actor stars in the devilish "Horns."
