EXTREMELY WELL DONE. It had an exquisit 70s feel. Also, new Mark Strong fan.
I don’t think many people will go to see it, however. Its too though-out and dramatic for most audiences to handle. It’s not an action-espionage flick. Its a hard core masterpiece.
Amazing performances by all. In my opinion in defined a new era of acting for Oldman, and Cumberbatch. It was also nice to see Firth in something that wasn’t an adaptation of Jane Austen.
Extra thought: Super interesting that they never show up Mrs. Smiley’s (Oldman’s wife) face. Definitely symbolic.
The Audience I saw it with was WEIRD AS ALL FUCK. WHY DID THOSE PEOPLE GET PASSES.
ps. Almost every character wears leather gloves at some point. It was a good thing for the Rizzo.
