A 2001 classic spy thriller from director-producer John Boorman, "The Tailor of Panama" is old school and absorbing. It follows the story of Andy Osnard played by Pierce Brosnan who has been sent to Panama by the British secret service, He has to work with the new government after the Panama Canal is put back under their control. It's kind of a mix and match from "Casablanca" and "Our Man in Havana" as it deals with war, jaded people and the backdrop of world events. It works like an old-fashioned Hollywood cloak and dagger movie. The actors do a great job with Brosnan exhibiting surprising range playing a more well-rounded character than his previous James Bond 007 roles. Geoffrey Rush plays Harry Pendel, the tailor who takes in Osnard and Micki Abraxas plays Brendan Gleeson, an ex-revolutionary who takes on drug dealers in the movie.
