The tense spy thriller by Len Deighton that turned Michael Caine into a superstar. Cynical and rebellious ex-army sergeant Harry Palmer has been blackmailed into working for Britain's security service.

Hot on the trail of a kidnapped scientist, Palmer finds himself enmeshed in a sinister conspiracy involving horrifying brainwashing techniques, murder and treachery that reaches up to the highest levels of the security service itself.

Often hailed as Len Deighton's finest spy story, The Ipcress File is a tour-de-force of tension and intrigue.

Top 100 DVD Reviewer

One of the best cold war spy thrillers to be made in England, "The Iprcress File" also features Michael Caine in his first starring role.

Filmed during the grey, rainy autumn of 1964, Caine's reluctant spy Harry Palmer moves against a dreary, unswinging London backdrop, on the trail of a missing scientist. In comparison with most other thrillers of its era, all bright colours and heightened style, "The Ipcress File" remains deliberately drab and downbeat, all dull offices and 9 to 5 routine.

It's still a great thriller, though, as much a British film noir as a spy thriller. There is a sense of existential dread running through the film, which builds to a memorable climax in a psychedelic torture chamber. Director Sidney J Furie invests the film with all manner of crazy camera angles, giving the film a unique personality, evocative of its era. The locations are all excellent, at once drab yet utterly memorable, making the film a fascinating period piece.

Caine's superiors, wonderfully played by Guy Doleman and Nigel Green, are a joy to watch, making their characters at once funny and quite sinister. Sue Lloyd is gorgeous as Harry's love interest, though, in keeping with the feel of the film, her wardrobe is quite ordinary and she looks like the kind of pretty girl who could be working in any office. It's Caine, however, who really makes the film still seem vital - whereas much of the film is a window on a bygone era, Caine (and his performance in this film) still seem fresh and utterly modern. His insolent cynicism is both great fun to watch and quite timeless.
