Under the Radar
August 15, 2014 Even an ensemble cast of a very high pedigree can't overcome a plot that's been compacted into near-incomprehensibility.Read in Source
February 02, 2013 For all those that look at the films of the golden age and chide that "they don't make them that way anymore", here's a fine example that a film can be fresh, intelligent, drawing from the past while carving out its own unique and very contemporary visionRead in Source

December 23, 2011 It's a well-crafted film that wears its old-fashionedness with pride.Read in Source
September 25, 2013 "Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy," with its meticulous Cold War details and labyrinthine plot, is like a smoky 25-year-old single malt scotch whiskey. It hits you hard, but goes down smooth.Read in Source
