The first reviews for “A Most Wanted Man” are being released. We made a round-up of reviews in this post as well as some first twitter reactions. The movie premiere yesterday during the Sundance Film Festival but already screened the days before for industry/press.
“Intelligence is both the subject and the approach of Anton Corbijn’s “A Most Wanted Man,” a meticulously plotted, steadily absorbing Hamburg-set drama that casts a cynical yet compassionate eye on the complexities of counterterrorist work in the post-9/11 era [...] Starring the Teuton-accented trio of Philip Seymour Hoffman, Rachel McAdams and Willem Dafoe, a risky casting decision that ultimately pays off, this decidedly low-pulse endeavor will put off viewers who like their spy thrillers with a bit more oomph, but should court plenty of intrigue among discerning arthouse-goers who see the name “John le Carre” and know what they’re in for.”
Rachel is currently in Park City, Utah for the Sundance Film Festival premiere of “A Most Wanted Man“. The movie is selected for the Premieres selection (out of competition). Rachel already did two portrait sessions this morning alongside co-stars Philip Seymour Hoffman and Willem Dafoe and director Anton Corbijn.

A Most Wanted Man

Anton Corbijn’s adaptation of John Le Carre’s psychological novel follows German spy Gunther Bachmann as he tracks down Issa, a suspicious Chechen-Russian immigrant on the run in Hamburg. Pressured by his German and American colleagues to capture and interrogate his suspect as a Muslim terrorist, Bachmann instead asks for more time to carefully track Issa’s movements and his relationship with his German immigration lawyer, Annabel Richter. Using his secret contacts and keen skill, Bachmann uncovers a connection between a world-renowned Muslim philanthropist and a terrorist group, and devises a plan to use Issa and Annabel in a brilliant ploy to expose the scheme.
