Philip Seymour Hoffman’s last major film, “A Most Wanted Man” set in Hamburg where the conspirators of 9/11 lived at one point. A Most Wanted Man is based on John le Carre’s novel, to tell a story of one intelligent and dissuaded man, Gunther Bachmann. Bachmann is a persistent and alert character. The protagonist of in A Most Wanted Man is a bit fascinating. A shy, half-Chechen, half-Rsussian, and religious Issa (Grigory Dobrygin) from Chechnya comes to Germany after being tortured by Russians. He’s given shelter by Hamburg’s Islamic community. Bachmann learns that Issa has inherited a large sum of money being held by a corrupt German banker, Tommy Brue (Willeam Dofe), and Issa also having ties with Dr.Abdullah to aiding terrorist organizations. Both Germany and U.S. networks want to arrest them; however, Bachmann fabricates a plan to decoy them.
A Most Wanted Man is a gripping spy film and one of the best of the year. The film has a stylish theme of 70s, but the cinematography of Benoit Delhomme is shabby. The film required a moving frame. The scenes were glued at an unmoving storyline. Philip Syemour Hoffman’s last few movies proved he was a character actor; he had the amiable quality of becoming the best out of the best. Seymour with The Master became the bona fide leading man. A Most Wanted Man is a hidden cat and mouse game for the audience. This film is directed by Antone Corbijin.
