News & Interviews for The Tailor of Panama
Critic Reviews for The Tailor of Panama
Boorman has crafted a witty, classy and richly enjoyable morality play, which skewers the mercenary self-interest behind Anglo-American imperialism almost as an afterthought.
If you think the spy-thriller genre has been streamlined and spoofed and subverted until nothing new can be done to it, think again.
Seems diligently assembled.
A wise, vivid, thoughtfully textured film.
[Boorman] manages to strike exactly the right tone, which is somewhere between irony and amused incredulity.
Audience Reviews for The Tailor of Panama
Not one of the best adaptations of John le Carré, it is sometimes messy and a bit too implausible to be taken serious, but still it has some good performances (Rush, Brosnan and Curtis) in an average spy story that manages to be entertaining for most of the time.
An intriguing tale of espionage and coercion in Central America. *Geoffrey Rush never ceases to amaze me and his performance here is no exception.
A run of the mill espionage thriller, comedy? I was hoping for a bit more. Good cast but I just didn't find the story that interesting.
