The Little Drummer Girl

Director: George Roy Hill
Year Released: 1984
Rating: 0.0

High production value and a globetrotting plot cannot salvage this total disaster, which is probably the worst film on Hill's resume. The difficulty in translating le Carre's plot is more than apparent - the picture seems lost most of the time, has difficulty explaining character motivation and is unable to properly link all the scenes and ideas together, going from one violent encounter to the other. Perhaps the most egregious offense is the casting of Diane Keaton (!) as a double-agent/terrorist - what, was Teri Garr busy?
