Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy (2011)
It's hard to compete with Alec Guinness's iconic George Smiley in the 1979 miniseries, but Gary Oldman makes his own mark -- still old, still tired, still quiet, but very cold. Guinness had the quiet of a thinker. Oldman has the silence of a predator. He's supported by an astonishingly good cast of British leading lights. I imagine that director Tomas Alfredson (Let the Right One In) hardly needs to wring good performances out of them, but they certainly work well together.
A stellar adaptation.
