But while the philosophy of Beirut is lacking, the film is generally entertaining.

Tony Gilroy's script is intricate and intelligent, with an appropriately cynical view of US foreign relations. And Hamm makes hay with his best role since Mad Men.

August 20, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

An enjoyably pacey spy picture, unfolding against the backdrop of a country that has imploded.

August 12, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

At times it feels like a slightly less expensive Munich, or Homeland in artificial fabrics. Yet the performances are uniformly gritty and the script by Tony Gilroy does a nice job of balancing geopolitical nous with brisk storytelling.

Kudos to Anderson and Gilroy for making a low-action, dialogue-heavy geopolitical thriller in this day and age.

August 10, 2018 | Rating: 3/5

It's Hamm's world-weary charisma that locks you in. The Negotiator proves he's got the A-list chops to join the big boys.
