John Le Carre

A bit clunky at times, Our Kind of Traitor is still a gripping spy yarn that forgoes the Bond and Borne tropes in exchange for a more cerebral, character-driven adventure.


Philip Seymour Hoffman anchors this John le Carré adaptation and makes it compelling, even when the film’s rambling tendencies threaten to derail it.


‘Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy’ is the movie adaptation of John Le Carre’s 1974 novel about the hunt for a Soviet double agent at the top of the ladder in the British secret service. Gary Oldman plays the man charged with figuring out who the mole is. The audience, however, is challenged with trying to figure out what the hell is going on.
