    Venice '11 Review: 'Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy' Is A Remarkable, Quietly Devastating Spy Movie

    The spy genre, is generally speaking, a euphemism for 'action movie' -- look at the explosions, fistfights and car chases of the Bond films, of the 'Mission: Impossible' series, of the 'Bourne' franchise, none of which have much in the way of actual tradecraft.

    Tinker Tailor Poster Spy: One-Sheet Arrives For Eagerly Anticipated Spy Flick

    Every time we have to see something like "The Smurfs" or "Glee: The 3D Concert Movie" we get through it (other than by self-medicating) by remembering that it's only a few months before "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy" hits theaters. The English-language debut of "Let The Right One In" director Tomas Alfredson, and the first big-screen version of the John le Carré spy novel already memorably adapted for television in the 1970s, the film's long been one of our most anticipated, considering its impeccably-pedigreed cast, and the teaser trailer that landed a few weeks back did absolutely nothing to change that, being one of the most mouth-watering cl...
