A Most Wanted Man

(Anton Corbijn, 2014)

with Mike Lavoie, Peery’s Egyptian Theatre (Ogden), 1/24/14


most wanted man

A movie like this – which builds and builds and builds, slowly and inexorably, scene upon scene, intrigue within intrigue – had better be prepared to deliver a killer ending.  A Most Wanted Man has a lousy ending.  Just an arbitrary, disappointing, meaningless dud of an ending.  Up to that point, the movie’s pretty engaging, in its own slow way.  But endings matter.  They matter an awful lot.
