Smiley in the Car: One of my favorite moments in the movie (not in the book, I think) is when they're driving to a safe house. You could shake this screenplay and nothing would fall out, that's how airtight it is. Perhaps the most well-known novel by Le Carré, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy is a Cold War melodrama about one MI6 agent's attempt to find a mole within his ranks. The dark tone I think matches well Le Carre's idea of moral ambiguity for the spy services on all sides in this book and others... that in the cold war, our actions and choices aren't more moral than theirs in the end. Gary Oldman is a treasure. After finishing the book, the movie was incredible and it's a favorite of mine now. I only watched this movie once and I'm planning to do a second watch. I've seen both the BBC TV series of TTSS and the movie multiple times. I think the movie made some good changes, namely seeing what happened to Jim at the start and changing how it happened. With Gary Oldman, Colin Firth, Tom Hardy, Mark Strong. Smiley's Monologue: The one time he does unburden himself, he delivers that showstopping monologue, most of it whispered, about his one encounter with Karla, a monologue full of buried grief over the moral ambiguity that underpins the entire Cold War ("Don't you think it's time to recognize that there's as little worth on your side as there is on mine?" I love spy movies. British author John le Carré, writer of Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy and The Night Manager, has died aged 89, his literary agent said late on Sunday. I do LOVE slow movies but, for this one, I actually had to make a pause, clear my head a bit and come back minutes later. I think it was mostly because I didn't pay super close attention and I lost the subtleties. Turns out I've seen that according to IMDB, don't remember it but liked it, will have to check it out again. What's interesting is that in the books, Smiley is described as this grubby, awkward, pudgy little man, always stumbling around, his overcoat stained. I remembered none of them being in the movie, The only two that threw me for a loop were David Dencik as Toby Esterhase and Toby Jones as Percy Alleline, as I pictured someone looking like them, but in reverse roles. I think something about my mind rebels against it. Follow asked Jun 29 '17 at 10:28. Share. I know there is a BBC series that I do hope to check out at some point. I'm thrilled he was nominated for this role as he is truly giving a very difficult performance. Here’s a great essay on the design aesthetics of the film. ._33axOHPa8DzNnTmwzen-wO{display:block;padding:0 16px;width:100%}.isNotInButtons2020 ._33axOHPa8DzNnTmwzen-wO{font-size:14px;font-weight:700;letter-spacing:.5px;line-height:32px;text-transform:uppercase} I do find this to be a perfect casting.

We looked at eachother 30 or 40 minutes in, and I realized that he, too, had no fucking clue what was going on. Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy (2011) is one of the most underrated films of the decade. /*# sourceMappingURL=https://www.redditstatic.com/desktop2x/chunkCSS/ReredditLink.f7b66a91705891e84a09.css.map*/real many of the emotional arcs feel; my favorite is the way, at the end, that Prideaux has to snarl at Bill, his surrogate son at the school, to drive him away: one last betrayal in a movie full of them. Tonally it's got such a well matched pace, colour palette, location and editing style. Tomas Alfredson's direction is immaculate. I have no idea what is happening. 1.6k New comments cannot be posted and votes cannot be cast, Press J to jump to the feed. I also plan on reading the two sequels as well. Agreed, it keeps getting better after every subsequent viewing and the subtlety of the performances, the details, and the level of craft become apparent. It has great extended setpieces--Guillam in the lions' den, Ricki and Irina, Prideaux in Hungary. I love slow paced movies. I have not watched it, but I definitely want to see it at some point! His character holds the weight of world on his back throughout the film, yet he must always remain his composure. Control (Hurt) knows there's a mole in the British secret service. My friend, your comment elevated one of my favorite movies of all time to one of my FAVORITE movies of all time. The BBC miniseries is the most faithful adaptation and also stars the excellent Alec Guinness and Ian Richardson. Smiley says, ruefully, "...I can't remember." 2. Any other movies (or shows) that I might like that feel like this? Oldhman and Mark Strong's (Jim Prideaux) actors are the only two I remembered so I mostly pictured their characters as them. It’s like one of those maddeningly elusive regional English dialects: you need to get the hang of it, and it always takes longer than you would have thought possible. Press question mark to learn the rest of the keyboard shortcuts. Not too much about the subtle details that's always going on the movie, but I think it was the sluggish pace of it. It was a little hard to read at first and really don't grip it until about 2/3rds of the way through, but that seems to be common for a first time read. ._12xlue8dQ1odPw1J81FIGQ{display:inline-block;vertical-align:middle} (If you're curious, in the book, it's the same idea, but he's ambushed approaching a meeting house). Not your Bond action flick, more of a slow-burning mystery. Dimosa's Quest 126 views. Oldman's take on Smiley is a brilliant reimagining of that: almost Zenlike in its utter self-containment, a monumental feat of character expression through restraint. So back to the movie, I probably felt the same way the first time watching it, lot of names, not nearly as many as the book, but different operations and code names so Im sure I had a tough time keeping track of it. At the end, Bill makes it clear that he was interfering in their relationship on purpose, to "trouble" Smiley's view on him, so the essential information is there. Much in the manner of Bill Haydon, in John le Carre's novel Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy, Blake passed British intelligence to his Soviet handlers while pretending the flow was the other way. In both films, the plot moves rather slowly, yet you can't look away despite their slow pace. Recommended! It’s as if he had determined to make them movie-proof. TBH I saw it twice without truly appreciating it, But I suspected that perhaps the imagery of the TV series was too powerful for me to overcome. I would recommend the BBC series as well, it’s very good. Plus, I wanted more Mark Strong. It's brilliant. .s5ap8yh1b4ZfwxvHizW3f{color:var(--newCommunityTheme-metaText);padding-top:5px}.s5ap8yh1b4ZfwxvHizW3f._19JhaP1slDQqu2XgT3vVS0{color:#ea0027} Both are available on Bluray.

Smiley (Oldman) catches wind of this when things go wrong for Rickey Tarr who goes to Smiley for help and that starts Smiley on the trail of the mole. The screenplay changes the book in ways that heighten this sense of secrecy: one of the biggest is that Peter Guillam, who in the book is a womanizer in this boring affair with a hippie girl, is here secretly gay, and forced to break off his relationship with a man as he joins Smiley's team. George Smiley, le Carre's iconic spymaster, is brought out … Press question mark to learn the rest of the keyboard shortcuts.

Anyone else love this movie? I tried the movie before the book and never finished it. It's heartbreaking. There's a fly in the car, and all the other characters keep swatting at it; when it gets to Smiley, he lowers his window and the thing flies out. The crazy thing too is that the movie improves on the book, which is great to begin with, in almost every way. The film has an admittedly slow pace and it doesn't hold your hand through any of it.

However, despite the intricate path Smiley takes to find out who the mole is, one can always follow the film's logic by returning to this brilliantly simple central premise. Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy is a thoughtful take on complex spy narrative. After hearing Smiley pour his soul out, Guillam asks him what Karla looked like. “Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy,” his sixth novel, dates from that era, and at the time it was the twistiest, most labyrinthine act of narration he had ever perpetrated: So in some way, it would be hard even for a TV series to do justice to his works. Here are my favorite things about it: Structure: You really have to watch this movie twice to get it at all. There is a spy at the highest level of MI6 and it is up to George Smiley (Oldman) to find out who it is. Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy Critics Consensus. Now I can't watch the film without spotting the bits they cut out or changed. I have the exact same experience, watched it first when I was thirteen but didn't really like it. It also dropped a lot of code words, Jim has a few different names he's known as in the book (old covers), and I think that was a good choice for a movie. “Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy” author John le Carre, who cast flawed spies on to the bleak chessboard of Cold War rivalry, has died aged 89.

Can you figure it out in time? I think the only thing that I feel was really missing that they left out a lot of Guillam's story. I am with you. There is sweet jazz and lots of delicate piano melodies to listen to while you watch. Peter Guillam's Boyfriend: You really come away feeling like these are people who have spent their entire lives looking over their shoulders, checking their exits, guarding their lives. I recently watched it again a few months ago and I found it riveting. For Smiley’s monologue, I got the sense that he very much remembers what Karla looked like - Smiley doesn’t seem like one to forget, especially considering how keen the memory has been to this point - but I took the point to be that humanizing Karla to Guillam was something dangerous or somehow forbidden. Half the fun of this film is it's classy yet eerily quiet tone. So I then decided to re-read the book and then watch the movie. www.nytimes.com/2011/09/18/movies/adapting-john-le-carre-novels-for-the-movies.html.
