Modin wrote of him: "He never revealed his true self. This is surely right, but only to a point. Philby would have hotly denied the charge of mockery. In an interview with the journalist Phillip Knightley in Moscow in , he was adamant: "I don't like deceiving people, especially friends, and contrary to what others think, I feel very badly about it.
After his defection to Moscow he was joined by his third wife, Eleanor, who one day asked him what was more important in his life, her and their children, or the Communist party. One reads this exchange with a shiver, yet with a certain admiration, too. How many of us would have the steel to give ourselves over so unwaveringly to a cause? How could he deceive his family, friends and colleagues? The fact is, however, Philby was a perfectly ordinary product of his time and milieu, except for one thing, the ferocity of his commitment to a cause.
Simply put, we have forgotten what it is to be seized by the force of an idea. Isaiah Berlin , contemplating the "ideological storms" that swept through the 20th century, cautioned that "it is as well to realise that these great movements began with ideas in people's heads: ideas about what relations between men have been, are, might be, and should be; and to realise how they came to be transformed in the name of a vision of some supreme goal in the minds of the leaders, above all of the prophets with armies at their backs.
There are those who point to the love-hate relations between him and his doughty father, the Arabist St John Philby, as the source of a violent drive towards duplicity and betrayal. Milne, nephew of the creator of Winnie-the-Pooh, would later serve in MI6 — was there anyone in that circle who did not do his and sometimes even her stint as a spy? St John Philby had been a popular success at Westminster, but "Kim was uninterested in trying to emulate … these successes, nor did he give the impression of having turned his back on them because he knew he would fall short of his father's achievement: it was merely that he thought he had better things to do.
Unlike most of the others, however, he dedicated his life to the overthrow of capitalism. But did he truly believe in the cause? I stayed the course. There is the fact that for all his leftwing convictions he was also a snob. From there, she exposes their lies and hypocrisies.

Sure, the fact that she's engaged in deception to know all that she knows and has her own hypocrisies doesn't make sense In the course of the night, she shows the hidden videos of the "friends" cheating on each other, raping each other and spying on each other, while keeping their secrets. Throw in some mushrooms and general trippiness and what's not to like?
The rock solid script takes you through the various sins with some excellent group dynamics and ensemble acting. Towards the end, Jules the blond bombshell who's tripping goes into a full blown hallucination which throws out an even more unsettling vibe with a gasp-inducing consequence.

Everyone is spot on in their roles. Bernadette plays her insanity with a subtleness and restraint that could have thrown the movie off the rails. This provides the perfect contrast in the rare moments when she does flip out. Jules, too, shines in her role and brings depth to her party-girl persona. When I first saw her, I thought she was too pretty bring off the role but she fearlessly takes on the drug trip aspect and sells it brilliantly.
