It's a watchable, likely accurate recitation of facts, with two outstanding performances. But in the case of the Falcon and the Snowman, the truth we don't see onscreen may be stranger, and stronger, than the historical fiction that has been created.

Hutton succumbs firstly to a thin role, and secondly to the film's lack of any strong viewpoint about its leading men. As usual Schlesinger is more than half in love with what he might be satirising.

Though Penn and Hutton perform admirably, the film fails to be interesting.

August 30, 2004
A very curious though effective entertainment, a scathing social satire in the form of an outrageously clumsy spy story told with a completely straight face.
August 21, 2004
An exercise in vagueness.

intriguing but a bit dry
| Original Score: 3/5
October 2, 2003
A smart, nuanced spy thriller that's all about the gray areas.
| Original Score: 4/5
May 24, 2003
A clever, poignant spy film that avoids formulaic action in favour of human drama. Both leading characters are carefully drawn and it's down to skilful performances that their plight grows increasingly absorbing.
July 25, 2002
Fresh and invigorating political thriller.
