Geoffrey Rush, that superb actor with a killer instinct for the outsize role, plays a needle-and-thread man with secrets sewn into his psychic lining in John Boorman’s masterful, eccentrically bespoke adaptation of The Tailor of Panama, about a fabulist who meets his match when a shady British spy walks into his Panama City establishment shopping for secrets. Pierce Brosnan happily plays the spy as the opposite of everything James Bond would stand for — a man more shaken than stirring.
