Critic Reviews for The Quiller Memorandum

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (4)

A B movie, never mind the big budget and the famous names, is exactly what Memorandum is. The plot is generally aimless, the lines are merely cute.

It relies on a straight narrative storyline, simple but holding, literate dialog and well-drawn characters.

Although the whole thing is ill-served by Michael Anderson's direction, it remains perversely likeable precisely because it is rather long-winded and enigmatic.

If you've got any spying to be done in Berlin, don't send George Segal to do the job. Or rather, don't send the pudding-headed fellow that Mr. Segal plays in "The Quiller Memorandum.

Spy thrillers depend on constant action and narrative twists, whereas plots and Pinter simply do not mix.

The menace of Harold Pinter's script is marvellously sustained by director Michael Anderson in this espionage thriller, with George Segal giving one of his finest performances.
