I get a certain satisfaction from how the programming of "listen to me..." works against Dalby in the final scene and Palmer ends up shooting him as "the traitor" as a result. And to cap it off we get a reprise of Barry's 'A Man Alone' theme...lovely stuff  ajb007/cheers

It just flows without real highs and suspense.

You must have watched a different film.

For me, it's all about the spycraft.  I love watching competent people do their thing, and this film is filled with instances of spies doing their thing competently.

I'd forgotten how interesting some of the camera angles and stagings are in this film- very unique, in contrast to the occasionally workmanlike direction of the Bond films. Overall its a nicely grounded counterpoint to 007, if a little convoluted in the plot department at times.

Ha! And now it's BBC Two right at the moment. Funny how you guys keep picking films right before they're screened on UK TV! ajb007/smile

And even though I'd watched it on Friday evening, I still ended up watching bits of it again!
