The Secret Agent
Writer-director Christopher Hampton's adaptation of Joseph Conrad's widely-read novel is an honorable failure, a screen version that's actually too faithful to its source. Bob Hoskins stars as Verloc, a member of a Soho anarchist organization who also serves as a spy for the Russian Embassy in London, keeping them informed of his group's revolutionary activities. When he's ordered to act as an agent provocateur by his Embassy contact, staging an "outrage" by setting off a bomb in the Greenwich Observatory in order to call attention to the anarchist problem, Verloc cruelly enlists the unwitting aid of his simpleminded brother-in-law, Stevie (Christian Bale)....
