Period Piece: The Man from U.N.C.L.E., reviewed.

I’m a sucker for sixties spy shit, and that Guy Ritchie’s new big-screen version of The Man from U.N.C.L.E. is, unlike most reboots of stuff from the period, actually set in the period is a big selling point for me. It luxuriates in the clothes, cars, and music of the era, updating only the sexual politics. My NPR review spends an unlikely sum of real estate discussing Dirty Dancing.
