The new film is incredible, but the late Sir Alec Guinness' portrayal of George Smiley is more accessible and emotive. This series maintains sharp witty dialogue and a dark atmosphere that grabs the viewer from the very start. Pure brilliance.
"I'll become an oak of my own generation." Occasionally there are just lovely little deliveries.
6 hours of pure class. The recent cinema version is dogshite of the lowest order.
in the end, I got myself surprised why I have nothing to complain from the series. But hey, it's an amazing cast, and an amazing adaptation.
wow. I'm going to read this now.
a "must watch" addition to the most recent fim - Alec Guiness is just great
