With my review and claim that Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy is a near-masterpiece, I don’t believe it’s possible to get more hyperbolic about this film. Perhaps my fourth viewing, which will inevitably take place soon, could make that happen. Why such grand enthusiasm for a slow-burn “thriller” that’s splitting plenty of folks? Well, go see for yourself.

Thankfully for you lot, director Tomas Alfredson‘s film is expanding into 800 theaters today. To further urge you wise readers to go see the film, Focus Features was kind enough to give us these exclusive behind-the-scenes shots of Alfredson shooting the breeze and working with Gary Oldman and John Hurt on set. They’re black and white, meaning they’re all prestigious and such.

If you want more info on Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy, make sure to give our interviews with Mark Strong and Gary Oldman and Tomas Alfredson a read. To learn even more, I also highly recommend checking out a behind-the-scenes video the Matt Patches posted on Hollywood.com, which gives insight into one of the film’s best scenes.
