Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy

Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy ★★★★★

Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy is a brilliant adaptation of John le Carré’s novel, espionage films don’t get better than this. This movie demands your attention and if you look away for a minute you’ll find yourself lost. Tomas Alfredson slips in and out of flashbacks with no notice during conversations and the script requires you to notice everything spoken. I’ve seen this 4 or 5 times now and it’s perfect, it’s so great to watch a film made with this amount skill that doesn’t hold your hand through every revelation.
