When I saw this in the theater I remember admiring how well it was made and feeling like if I didn't pay full attention that I'd miss something. I'll confess that at the reveal at the end, I had no idea how Gary Oldman's character figured out who the spy was. When I left the theater I felt like I needed to see it again to to figure everything out, but I also did not care enough about it to actually want to see it again.

It's hands down my favorite sui generis novel of the Cold War era. The Alec Guinness/BBC production was the best thing I've ever seen on television. I missed this one when it came out, and can't wait to purchase it tomorrow.

I just watched it and to be quite honest, I have mixed feelings on it. On one hand, it is a truly brilliant movie. It is full of suspense, the acting is incredible, and the story has you guessing who is the spy. On the other hand, the movie is so convoluted it is not even funny. I spent most of the movie just trying to figure out what the hell is going on and who is supposed to be whom. It makes no sense.

Check out the special feature called "First Look" and see if that helps explain some of the details. I actually find it decently informative without giving anything away.

Yeah, I watched that after the movie. It helped, but the movie still made no god damn sense, at least in its first 45 minutes. However, I am going to watch it again soon because like I said, it was a brilliant movie.
