A Most Wanted Man (Philip Seymour Hoffman) | Anatomy of a Movie

In this AOM show, hosts Phil Svitek, Demetri Panos, and Sara Stretton discuss A Most Wanted Man which is a 2014 Drama film. It begins when a half-Chechen, half-Russian, brutally tortured immigrant turns up in Hamburg’s Islamic community, laying claim to his father’s ill gotten fortune, both German and US security agencies take a close interest: as the clock ticks down and the stakes rise, the race is on to establish this most wanted man’s true identity – oppressed victim or destruction-bent extremist? Based on John le Carré’s novel, A MOST WANTED MAN is a contemporary, cerebral tale of intrigue, love, rivalry, and politics that prickles with tension right through to its last heart-stopping scene. It stars Philip Seymour Hoffman in his last completed roll as well as Rachel McAdams and Willem Dafoe.
