  • 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.

    Mar 14, 2015 | Full Review…
  • 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.
