I just loved this movie. Complex, Artsy, I had it to watch it twice (ok, three times), I love movies that you have to return to. Beautifully filmed in the early 70’s with Gary Oldman, Bennedict Cumberbach and Colin Firth. The Brits are brilliant film makers and this movie will not disappoint. The ending song “la mer” has an eerie quality I had to look it up on YouTube. The movie is still running on HBO.
I recently saw Tinker Tailor Solider Spy. Again.
This adaptation of John Le Carre’s espionage novel is one of my favorite films from last year and one of the few I actually want to watch again. (There are not that many. 2011 was such a meh year for movies.) Director Tomas Alfredson and cinematographer Hoyte van Hoytema have made an exceptionally well-crafted film. And then there is Gary Oldman; his performance as George Smiley is quietly powerful and those are the best kind of performances. These are a few thoughts about what stood out to me about Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy the second time around.
