Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy : Movie Review

Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy is like a James Bond spy movie without the James or the Bond. It’s a meticulous espionage film depicting the true world of gentlemen in shadows hoarding and sharing information on behalf of their country’s security. It’s a grainy time piece that takes us back to the 70s with the Secret Intelligence Service (SIS) in London. It’s a torturous puzzle that may put you to sleep if you can’t follow along and requires an intellect to enjoy. It did wonderfully in Britain but I can’t see its success repeating in America. It’s painfully slow and dull at times but oh so rewarding in the end if you can keep up.
