Great movie. Some peeps think it’s too complicated with lots of confusing names and stuff. WTF! It’s the mother and father of all spy thrillers! Get real!
I vaguely remember the TV series with Ben Kenobi, ah, I mean Alec Guiness. Gary does a very good Alec impression and the quiet, old man act nearly works although Gary is certainly not as old.
Locations are perfectly grey, tatty and spy-like so the intelligent script is the colour on the canvas and it’s powerful stuff.
Neat, well made and not pretentious. Good stuff.
DVD Extras: Boring interview with John Le Carre. Other boring stuff.
Watch if on TV?
Snog, Marry, Avoid?
You will know this from the hidden microphone but it’s marriage for me, sir.
