One of the few truly exciting films to roll out before 2012 trumps the last decade of filmmaking is the Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy remake. The John le Carre spy novel was adapted previously as a BBC miniseries, which is home to one of the finest performances by an actor captured. If the profession is within your reach, it shall not be grasped without studying George Smiley, as played by Sir Alec Guinness. If you take my recommendation, be also prepared for the single most enjoyable use of Sir Patrick Stewart’s voice, in what would be considered a cameo had it not been made before Star Trek fame.
Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy and its sequel, Smiley’s People are more thrilling than most, if not all Bond adventures with barely a shot fired. They’re premium thrillers without car bombs or copters, inspiring adrenaline by understatement.
Who’s been cast in the remake? Gary Oldman has your answer after the jump.
