From The Dispatch:
"Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy" would feel right at home in a '70s retrospective, as if it came from the same school as "The Godfather," "The Conversation" and "All the President's Men." It's a strikingly crafted homage to a bygone era of filmmaking that also feels thrillingly contemporary. Each character holds their cards close to the chest, so much is said between the lines, learning as much from what they don't say as what they do. Their relationships remain as mysterious as their motives. Friendships, partnerships, alliances and perhaps even romances make up the film's cool but enthralling center.Click here to read my full review.
