A very different kind of spy film.

First of all, before watching Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy it’s important to know that it is not the James Bond-like spy film that features gun fights, car chases and a lot of violent physical contact. Nevertheless, it is unlike any other espionage film that you could possibly see as it takes you on a more theoretical journey into complex investigations and problem solving. Although spy films are n... read more

"There's a mole, right at the top of the Circus. And he's been there for years."

A rare type of modern spy thriller, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy is more interested in looks, pauses and intricate story machinations than guns and explosions. Mainstream audiences need not apply; this is the type of picture best consumed by more mature filmgoers who possess the sort of patience and attent... read more

“Warning: Spoilers

Ever since I first heard of this Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, I knew I wanted to see it. Primarily because of the cast, with Gary Oldman and John Hurt two of the best underrated actors today, Colin Firth a vast majority of the time delivering solid to marvellous work, Mark Strong who impresses me more and more every time I see him and Tom Hardy and Benedict Cumberbatch two of the most promising young stars working now.

Another point of interest is its source material and the 1979 version. At first, I did find the book somewhat a slow-burner and not to easy to get into. On repeat readings however, I do find it a compelling and very interesting piece of work. I had heard much about the 1979 version, and when I saw it I was more than impressed. It was tense” read more

"Movie: Netflix Instant Rating: Delicious Cleansing the pallet with a familiar movie. I've seen it four-ish times, and I think I understand most of it now. It has been a pleasure to notice something new every time I watched it, and I still remember leaving the theater after that first viewing being quite confused but pleased with what I'd just seen. "

"I said before that I usually can't get into political/spy stories if they're just being told casually straightforward, which may be why I couldn't quite follow this one. Even though I got nearly all the events, I just didn't know why they were happening or what their significance was to the characters. That said, I thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere and tone of the movie, and I'm definitely interested in seeing it again to get a better understanding of it. It's a pitch-perfect piece of cinema, bu"
