Film Trailers: A MOST WANTED MAN
A Most Wanted Man, adapted from a John le Carre novel of the same name, is the new film directed by Anton Corbijn (Control, The American) and features the one of the last performances from the great Philip Seymour Hoffman. The film premiered at this years Sundance Film Festival and received a rather muted response. No one going crazy over it or lamenting the film. A dark, probing thriller, with little sunshine involved. I like films that are a little dark. I thoroughly enjoyed both of Corbijn's past two films, especially Control, which followed the short life of Joy Division frontman Ian Curtis. They are extremely stylish and occur at a rather glacially pace. The film revolves around a Chechen Muslim who illegally immigrates to Hamburg, Germany and becomes involved in the international war on terror, according to IMDB. I am looking forward to this film because I thoroughly enjoy well executed thrillers, which I hope this one is, the beautiful cinematography from Benoît Delhomme that is evident in the trailer, and to see this wonderful cast perform, especially the late Hoffman. That cast includes, Willem Dafoe, Rachel McAdams, Robin Wright and Daniel Brühl. The film will be released on July 25th. Here is the trailer. Enjoy!
