Talk about Magic in the Muggle world! Steven Spielberg surely is a magician!
He weaves and creates Cold War USA and other locations with unerring ease. He builds a drama at a leisurely and rich pace. With the piercingly honest Tom Hanks he brings to the fore the nuances of a brilliant actor. Mark Rylance brings a mysterious clarity to his role, and a host of supporting actors add to the crisply edited proceedings.
Rooting his drama in history and fact, we are quickly unaware that we are watching a film. Every frame is authentic, there is massive attention to detail alongside a firm grip on the plot and screen play.
A cinematic experience, a sensitive decisive movie which is a treat for the senses!
