This is a superb movie. Truly superb. Gary Oldman leads an all star cast and takes us on a gradual climb through John Le Carre’s story. There is a mole in the circus, or so the Controller (played by John Hurt) says. It is up to Smiley (played by the aforementioned Oldman) to find this mole who is selling secrets to the Russians.
The movie builds slowly and unravels magnificently, a spy thriller at its best. We are brought into this world and gripped by its intrigue. With a cast that includes Mark Strong, Ciaran Hinds and Collin Firth, it is a stylish and exciting watch. This is a work of art and should not be missed.
