Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy

Review: Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy

04 Feb 12

When spying was low tech with knobs and switches.

Looking back at the cold war it would seem that spying was a career created to keep civil servants in work. Everyone was spying for everyone and those who weren't spying were keeping the spies under control.This was in incredible mini-series once upon a time with Alec Guiness as George Smiley. The movie holds up well against it with terrific performances all round.
But be warned! If you aren't old enough to remember the cold war this film may seem dull and slow.
I grew up in England during this era, and I loved it!!
