Synopsis

In London, a counter espionage agent deals with his own bureaucracy while investigating the kidnapping and brainwashing of British scientists.

Our take

Michael Caine stars in this iconic British film based on Len Deighton’s popular spy novel. A stylish, mod-influenced spy thriller that acts as a brilliant counterpoint to James Bond, the film is ripe with Cold War paranoia, trippy 60s visuals, and anxieties about the mass influence of brainwashing.
