Bridge of Spies

Spielberg's warm-hearted Cold War thriller is lit up by Tom Hanks and Mark Rylance


Third from last paragraph - 'Francis Gary Powell, the pilot who was widely condemned for not allowing himself to be captured.' It's Powers not Powell and the word 'not' makes no sense factually and not a lot generally. Powers was criticised for not using a suicide device. The review is brilliant. Has it been badly sub-edited? Nobody could write such a good review and then make two major errors in the same paragraph.

Thank you, Jeremy. The (double) fault is with the hasty, myopic self-editor and has been corrected.
