    Gary Oldman Talks TINKER TAILOR SOLDIER SPY and Shooting THE DARK KNIGHT RISES on IMAX

    Had forgotten that this was directed by the guy who did the original 'Let Me in'. Glad he made the English translation move. Guess we can expect more good things.

    I don't normally go to CNN for reviews, but this is a good read regardless.

    REVIEW: Gary Oldman Sneaks Off with One of the Year's Great Performances in Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy | Movieline

    Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy feels both old-fashioned and modern at once. Even though it lives squarely in the moment, it could have been made in the ’70s, for the way it so wholly trusts its audience to keep up with every minute, nearly imperceptible plot turn. It’s like an action movie constructed from glances, suggestions and suppressed sighs rather than gunplay. The picture’s lovely, understated score (by Alberto Iglesias), with its whispering strings and muted trumpets, perfectly suits the movie’s palette of soft mauves and grays. Even the cinematography and production design, by Hoyte Van Hoytema and Maria Djurkovic respectively, speak in a secretive whisper: The movie is rendered in the colors of smoke, though its contours are solid and shapely, a universe of pedestrian office desks, ugly telephones and overflowing ashtrays — aesthetically, this 1970s England probably isn’t as dismal as the Eastern Bloc, but it might be pretty close.

    I thought it was an interesting movie with some good performances by the actors. It's very slow though, so be prepared for it. I had a bit of a hard time following their thought process when it cames to the clues and conclusions they reached from said clues. The movie doesn't spell it out for you and challenges you to keep up. I had become so accustomed to black and white flashbacks explaining the conclusion of a mystery that when a movie actually just presented it straight without looking back to fill in the blanks I got stumped. When I get around to watching it again I'll make sure I'm focused

    Observations on film art : TINKER TAILOR: A guide for the perplexed

    Not reading this myself because I haven't seen the film yet, but Bordwell is one of the best writers I've ever come across, so this is probably a good read.
