The Kremlin Letter

  • Film

Time Out says

Starting out as an all-star espionage saga with a state secret as the supposed Grail, this quickly reveals itself as a serpentine tale of treachery and double-dealing. What makes the film so powerful is that where before such films have generally titillated us with their stories of violence and sex in defence of one's country, Huston structures his film around such expectations, so forcing us to take account of his spies' actions. The resulting film is possibly the clearest statement of Huston's vision of a cruel and senseless world in operation.
