A Most Wanted Man (2014)
Critic Consensus: Smart, subtle, and steadily absorbing, A Most Wanted Man proves once again that John le Carre books make for sharp, thoughtful thrillers.
When a half-Chechen, half-Russian, brutally tortured immigrant turns up in Hamburg's Islamic community, laying claim to his father's ill-gotten fortune, both German and US security agencies take a close interest: as the clock ticks down and the stakes rise, the race is on to establish this most wanted man's true identity - oppressed victim or destruction-bent extremist?

Critic Reviews for A Most Wanted Man
Hoffman's an actor who could do just about anything, but being authentically German is not one of them.
One of the countless sad things about losing Hoffman is the realization that we'll never get to watch him single-handedly elevate an otherwise OK movie again.
The end result may look good but it never feels distinctive despite the wealth of talent involved in front of and behind the camera.
Audience Reviews for A Most Wanted Man
Hoffman delivers a fantastic and underactedly visceral performance in his last completed movie, a suspenseful espionage thriller that grabs us and keeps us always guessing, up until it reaches a suffocatingly tense climax and surprises us with a spectacular ending.
Although slow and understated, A Most Wanted Man creates suspense with a new threat in a worn out world of bureaucracy and burn out. Hoffman and McAdams are marvelous.
Philip Seymour Hoffman's swan song is a slow-burning yet always intriguing topical spy thriller that contains a true gut-punch of an ending.
