The Spy Who Came in from the Cold

The Spy Who Came in from the COldThe Spy Who Came in from the Cold: Richard Burton creates a subtle, great portrait in this cold, unromantic yet thrilling (in a fashion) view of the world of espionage. The serpentine plot is rather interesting and well put together. Oswald Morris’ camera work is dynamic and elegant; the lighting is curiously hard. It certainly was a creative decision with director Martin Ritt: the characters, for the most part, are scrutinized and shown in very unflattering ways by the story; the aesthetic choice complements that idea. Solid film.
