“Dig it, dig it, dig it !!!!! This is a film of rare quality. I can watch more of this. Let’s greenlight the tv/streaming series. Now. Also, I thought the cast was a good call. Going with the actor used as opposed to a young pretty boy.”
Someone greenlight a TV series on Netflix, please. This genuinely gives me hope for Australian cinema.

“This is an impeccably made thriller in every aspect: direction, cinematography, settings, great performances… Mannion keeps us intrigued from the very beginning with this story, wonderfully set in the 60s, and with that classic taste to the old-style political thrillers, with a brilliant plot twist at the end.”
This film is a definite must watch twice movie. 2nd viewing reveals this film for the masterpiece it is. Brilliantly edited and minimalist approach that suggests something so much greater and more insidious.
I wanted more of it! I love biographical movies, and so I came to watch this, but this was even better than I expected. Exciting, engaging, and intriguing. Feels like a Sydney Pollack film. It’s wonderfully crafted and heavy with an atmosphere of paranoia. The film is well acted and the cinematography crackles. It feels bigger than it’s budget.

“Wonderfully atmospheric and stylish film, both an homage to, and a satire of, Cold War spy dramas à la LeCarré. The beginning of the movie reminds one of a really faithful, really meticulous LeCarré adaptation – think BBC at its best – and then gradually ever more uncanny elements creep in. The finale is deeply disquieting, proving once again that horrors hinted at are more frightening than horrors explained. Nice, natural performances and very high production values.”
