FRI­DAY TIN­KER TAILOR SOL­DIER SPY

WITH LEIGH PAATSCH

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - FRONT PAGE -

8.30PM, SBS While the sheer bulk of John le Carre’s clas­sic es­pi­onage novel has been con­sid­er­ably thinned for the big screen, the com­plex ar­ray of flavours re­mains in­tact. Those with a re­fined palate for chal­leng­ing, in­tel­li­gent and charis­matic sto­ry­telling should unashamedly gorge them­selves on the feast pre­sented here. Gary Old­man stars as re­tired master spy Ge­orge Smi­ley, re­called by Bri­tish in­tel­li­gence at the height of the Cold War to iden­tify a dou­ble-agent in their midst. An ad­dic­tively im­mer­sive ex­pe­ri­ence.
