The Golden Compass (2007)

The Golden Compass
Dir. Chris Weitz
Premiered November 27, 2007

The Facts of Death: Casino Royale, Part XIII

“The big picture.”

These words, lifted from Bond’s chastisement at M’s hands earlier in the film, reverberate with a darker significance as Bond murmurs them to Le Chiffre.
