  • Smiley's People: Or, Spys Are Us Apr 28, 2013
    by Edward

    Tinker, Tailor set an impossibly high standard for a well acted, suspenseful character study of the spy world. Yet, Smiley's People, with Sir Alec Guinness reprising his role as George Smiley does not disappoint. Many questions left unanswered in the earlier film are addressed here, but mysteries of human nature successfully resist full disclosure; deeper themes of motivation and betrayal continue to intrigue us.
    Guinness simply owns the part of Smiley, to the point of finding it hard to imagine him acting the many other roles he gave us over a long and distinguished career. Supporting roles are superbly developed as well in this paean to a world, nearly forgotten, we seem to have rediscovered again.

    This is the second of the BBC mini series and this one is as great as the first installment. There is nothing more to say than it is great.
