our film reviews: from armchair viewing to the festival front row

[Reel-Reviews] Tailor of Panama (2 stars)

When we first started this blog, people kept telling me they were worried that we'd only ever award 3, 4 or 5 stars. I replied that that's because we don't knowingly set out to watch crap. How times change...

Flicking on Film4 the other night, we watched Pierce Brosnan and Geoffrey Rush in this film based on a best-selling John Le Carre novel. Watchable at the very least, right?

This film doesn't know whether it's a drama, a thriller, a comedy, or a spoof of a spoof of Bond (note the leading man). So much less than the sum of its parts.
