| Utterly interesting - but destroyed by narcissistic narration.
The story of double cold war agent Kim Philby is most interesting, and luckily there are also other documentaries made than this. It all adds to the choise of presenter and narrator, historian Ben Macintyre, who over eagerly want the viewer to know what a brilliant expert he is on the topic. Sadly Macintyre is close to anti charismatic, both in his appearance in front of the camera and when one only listen to his voice. It's simply annoying and even more so when most of the film is showing him with his stiff gaze into the camera, either drinking, sitting, standing or walking in locations where the famous Philby once went. It's just horrible, and doesn't get saved by occasional well made dramatizations, which is one of few reasons to give more than one star.
