Movie: Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy

We saw Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy a couple of weeks ago at the State Theater.

I really liked it. It is a very old school, highbrow sort of spy movie - the antithesis of, say, Mission Impossible - with impeccable acting, gorgeous sets and scenes that capture the grey soul of 1970s Britain, and an intricate plot that slowly unravels throughout the movie. Don't expect a lot of chase scenes, explosions or automatic weapons. Do expect a stimulating couple of hours. The NYT likes it too.
