The Tailor of Panama
Eclectic director John Boorman (Deliverance, Hope and Glory
) joins forces with Pierce Brosnan and Geoffrey Rush for a winking take on John Le Carré's best-selling thriller. This old-fashioned espionage flick has Brosnan shedding his suave Bond persona for that of a double-dealing British agent exiled to Panama who pumps a hapless local haberdasher (Rush) for information. This low-key black comedy isn't for everyone, but Boorman's steady hand and Brosnan's against-type take make for refreshing entertainment.
