The best thing about this movie is that it drove me to read the book. It was by Graham Greene, after all. The movie is miscast, badly directed and generally inept. However, the story is compelling. It holds you, despite everything.
Alec Guiness in blackface. What more do you want?
A really weak Graham Greene adaptation. ET+RB together. That is it. Nothing else.
