Alec Guiness & John LeCarre -- Superb!
Alec Guiness, while widely know from Star Wars was a gem of an actor. His many films will show an interested viewer a very accomplished & gifted performer. In Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy you will see Alec Guiness lead a stable of actors in their portrail of the inner works of the British Spy machine. This is a delightful film that needs to be watched closely because there is a lot going on. Le Carre, a former spy, is a master storyteller. Guiness plays the retired but very thorough and well respected George Smiley who is asked to find the Russian 'mole' in the British Circus. This can viewed in a very long sitting or over a series of days or weeks. It is a film ou can return to again and again to enjoy. A sort of sequel is Smiley's People. But they are independent of each other. Seeing "Tinker, Tailor" first will benefit slightly when you watch Smiley's PeopleWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
