Movie Review: Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy

tinkerA lived-in performance by Gary Oldman is a standout in the taut espionage ensemble Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy (B+). The film’s slow-boil pace and period detail are rewarding as members of the British intelligence elite dodge double-crosses with duplicitous Cold War villains. Thomas Hardy, Colin Firth and Toby Jones are all good in bit roles.

I've reviewed films for more than 20 years. Current movie reviews of new theatrical releases and direct-to-video or streaming films are added weekly to the Silver Screen Capture movie news site. Many capsule critiques originally appeared in expanded form in my syndicated Lights Camera Reaction column.
