Super 8 drew unexpected backlash from people who need to have opinions about things because they felt the film looked too Spielbergish. However, I doubt that Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy will draw criticism for its retro 1970’s English vibe.
The English-language debut from Let The Right One In director Tomas Alfredson, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy stars Gary Oldman as a spy in the British Intelligence community trying to uproot a mole amongst its ranks. He sends British Namey Award Winner 2010 Benedict Cumberbatch to investigate five high-ranked agents to figure out which one it is. It turns into a race against time as the mole blows the cover of the best agents. And Colin Firth looks wicked guilty.
