7.28.2014 A Most Wanted Man

most wanted man

It is hard not to let the ghost of PSH hover over this film, especially in retrospect. A man who seems to be control, but was really just trying to play the part, until his power taken abruptly at the end. I must say that while I liked the film the whole time, i only loved it in the last few minutes. While it is certainly no twist, the way everything is handled created an overwhelming sense of guilt and anxiety. Corbijn has made nothing but great movies. It is a shame Philip will never again. Normally celebrity deaths don’t impact me much, but I still can’t shake the pain in my gut this gives me.  The man has given us all so much.
