Well, unfortunately, I watched it on the BBC without subtitles and I have to admit that I did struggle a bit to follow the dialogues so I should probably re-watch it at some point. I still really enjoyed it though and it definitely deserves its reputation of best cold war paranoid thriller. The most interesting thi... read more

However, the fact that it was taking place in a fairly realistic world created this constant mix of realism and surrealism. One of the most striking scenes” read more
