Director: Kim Hyun-jung Composer: Michael Staudacher With: Han Suk-kyu, Koh So-Young, Chun Ho-Jin, Song Jae-Ho
Double Agent is a tamped-down winter's chill of a film. Bringing to life the bad old days of the Cold War it gives us the calculating human chess games of John Le Carre at his best. A stomach churning look at he 1980's anti-communist madness that turned patriots into tortures, its plot hinges on the minutiae of a spy's life: the accidental photograph, a name dropped during a confession. A film for everyone who loves spy movies but hates one-liners. Here, espionage isn't a rah-rah thrill ride, but a carnivorous hall of mirrors where people walk in, and husks walk out.
