Solid, fast paced, intelligent thriller set in....Beirut. Hamm as a washed up Diplomat soused and wasting away his life gets a reprieve to go back to Beirut and right the ship. Being Lebanon the issues are multi complex and it helps to know the territory. Pike is as good as always and with that pairing a display of pulchritude for both sexes. It'S an equal opportunity array of digs at all political sides and no-one should walk away feeling too maligned. It took me an hour to recognize Dean Norris, courtesy of a wig, which was good since his character was imprinted before I was able to have a "Breaking Bad" deja vu moment.
