Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy

Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy: A bloody damn good movie with an extraordinary performance by Gary Oldman. Typical John Le Carré movie, may be too slow paced for some, but I found the deliberate pacing excellent as it makes the tense scenes even more stand out! And, it is a smart show. Excellent supporting all-star male supporting cast: from the young start-ups blonde Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock!) and an unrecognisable, pre-Bane Tom Hardy (Warrior!!), and formidable auteurs Colin Firth, John Hurt and Toby Jones. Oldman is a tour de force as the restrained, enigmatic Smiley who makes so much with so little actual dialogue. He is so much better than George Clooney (still waiting to catch Brad Pitt in Moneyball), and if Clooney and Dujardin splits votes, Oldman might snatch it!! Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Sailor; Rich man, Poor man, Beggar man, Thief.
