Cast and Crew: Mark Strong, Toby Jones, Ciaran Hinds, Colin Firth, Benedict Cumberbatch, Stephen Graham, Tom Hardy
What It’s About: Disgraced secret agent George Smiley (Gary Oldman) must find out who the mole in MI6 is.
Why Watch it Today?: Control (John Hurt) is fired on this date in the film. Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy is an excellent, cerebral thriller from author John Le Carre and director Tomas Alfredson of Let the Right One In, with an excellent cast.
Excellent pick. This one’s up there with The Conversation as one of my favorite “almost pure spy” genre flicks.
