Critic Reviews for The Agent
Beck does his best, and the dialogue crackles pleasantly, but he's a caricature: a lying, cheating smear of ordure who doesn't even like books. But his sin is worse than that - it's fiction's biggest. He's boring.
As a piece of small-scale British filmmaking it's an interesting enough diversion.
A quite unsexy subject handled quite adeptly, with pretty decent performances.
Lesley Manning's film never shakes off its theatrical roots but still manages to be sharp, funny and engrossing.
The Agent never really transcends its roots as a two-hander for the stage, but the director Lesley Manning does a good job of keeping things moving and production values are top notch.
