"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.
a "must watch" addition to the most recent fim - Alec Guiness is just great
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.
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.
