Tinker Tailor….I Forget The Rest

As if the title wasn’t long enough, the movie was even longer.

Storyline: a British intelligence agent comes out of retirement to find a double agent who sells secrets to the Soviets in the early 1970’s.

Actual Film: Gary Oldman swimming and a bunch of other people you can’t keep track of passing files back and forth.

2 hours and 7 minutes. I could’ve been home by then with a good book and left over breadsticks from Pat and Oscars. But no, I gave this movie a chance and it failed me!

It starts off well, a lot of action going on in another foreign country and then we see a day in the life of agent George Smiley (Oldman). Shockingly, the man never smiles. He tries to solve the mystery a dead colleague leaves behind and very, very, very slowly succeeds.

So, the idea behind this movie is great. The presentation of it sucks.
