Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy. Tomas Alfredson.  This is an underrated spy movie that almost passed my attention completely. Gary Oldman delivers a great, timid performance as George Smiley. The movie is based on a book from John le Carré who is the spy novel writer extraordinaire. Sleep well before you watch this movie because there are many subtle insinuations, connections and second-level clues to follow the movie. I guess you can say, this is a chess game in the form of a movie. Very watchable but make sure you are not distracted while you follow the plot. (2011)
