If, like myself, you find John Le Carre’s interview persona and his meticulously grim view of both human nature and human enterprise immensely entertaining and reassuring, then this is the movie for you. To me he’s like a Cold War relic W.A.S.P. version of Fran Leibowitz.
Points off for crap CGI (the recre’s were pretty dismal across the board, if i’m honest), churning strings score, and Errol Morris’ slightly embarrassing need to insert his thumb in the soup bowl but, honestly, I could’ve happily sat through 4 more hours of this. And for fuck's sake why NOT talk about his sex life! Cowards!
