Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy 
Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy review
3/4 stars

So many characters, and yet it revolves around Control (John Hurt) the head of British Intelligence ("the Circus"), George Smiley, "Beggarman" (Gary Oldman), Percy Alleline, "Tinker" (Toby Jones), Bill Haydon, "Tailor" (Colin Firth), and Roy Bland, "Soldier" (Ciarán Hinds). Oliver Lacon (Simon McBurney) brings Smiley back from retirement to investigate a possible mole in the British Intelligence. The mole has been leaking genuine high-grade British intelligence to Polyakov. Some minor qualms this rater had were the overloaded figures, sluggish start and lack of a better character development. On a positive note, the performances were solid (Oldman was exceptional), score was fantastic and displayed crafty camerawork from the beginning. One of the best lines" "There is nothing genuine anymore." and "You survived this long, I suppose, because of your ability to change sides, to serve any master." Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy is an intellectual character driven thriller that can be viewed again to further comprehend the somewhat confusing plot because of he overload of people involved and the mole's intent. A film of loyalty, choosing sides and justice being served.
