|Philip Seymour Hoffman in "A Man Most Wanted"|
Hoffman played Gunther Bachmann as the archetypical Le Carre spy - a weary, stressed-out, chain smoking, hard drinking and unscrupulous man with a moral agenda. Philip Seymour Hoffman, who tragically died earlier this year from a suspected drug overdose, gave a wonderfully powerful, moving and subtle performance just like the master actor he was. Thank you Hoffman for delving so deep into the character and giving such a truthful performance.
Good too for Le Carre to write another book about issues in the contemporary world.
