Hey, it’s THAT time of the year again! We have “Best Of 2016” lists wherever we look: Best Books of 2016, Best Movies of 2016, Best Albums of 2016 and so on… And, it is our utmost pleasure to jump on the “Best of” wagon with our TOP Damian Lewis Moments of 2016! We’d just love to take the last ten days or so of the year to reflect on the wonderful year Damian has had personally and professionally and hope to make you re-live those moments and SMILE and SMILE BIG!
We don’t intend to rank the top moments as many “Best Of” lists do. And we just pick moments in which, we believe, Damian shines as a brilliant actor, a wonderful storyteller, a true gentleman or just a guy who knows to have a good time!
The long wait is finally over! Even if you missed Our Kind of Traitorduring its limited run in movie theaters this summer, you can now have it on DVD or stream it on Amazon or iTunes.
I was lucky to catch one of the preview screenings in New York and it was an exciting experience to see Damian Lewis for the first time on big screen! I am happy to report I LOVED the movie but again I love my movies slow-cooking and artsy with flawed characters that come across as puzzles. I love spending two hours in a movie theater figuring out the puzzles as the story unfolds on screen.
Hankering to see a great le Carre thriller with Damian in a great role? The wait is over! Our Kind of Traitor is available on iTunes now and will be out on Amazon and Netflix on October 18. Sweet!
I had the good fortune to see the film when it was shown at Seattle Film Festival earlier this year. And here’s my review! Some spoilers, but nothing that’ll interfere with you wanting to see it for yourself.
The Guardian has recently shared a video of Damian Lewis reading from John le Carré’s Our Kind of Traitor in celebration of the author’s first memoir The Pigeon Tunnel coming out this week. Thanks to an event I will write about today I know this particular section Damian reads is one of his favorites in the book! So I wonder if Damian himself chose to read that section here. ENJOY!
The long wait is finally over! Our Kind of Traitorfinally hit US theaters in limited release on July 1 and I was able to catch one of the first screenings in NY.

As a thriller set in exotic locales and shot with a quick eye designed to keep you on the edge of your seat, Our Kind of Traitor, does not disappoint. In a packed house at Seattle Film Festival, amidst folks who know movies, I’m happy to report there was no shortage of gasps and leaning in, getting to the edge of the seat, throughout the theater. The film had many strong notes and some not so strong. Here’s my review! Some spoilers, but nothing that’ll kill your wanting to see it for yourself – the film is in general release in the US today, July 1!
