Fresh from the 2011 Venice Film Festival “Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy” seems to have caused quite a stir, with Empire Online hailing it as “…surely a contender for Greatest Cast Ever Assembled”. Other critics were just as enthusiastic with potitive reviews across the board:
“..with that cast and Alfredson’s atmospheric approach, it should be a hit.”
– The Independent
“Anticipation couldn’t be higher… judging from the trailer, it would appear that director Tomas Alfredson [has] succeeded.”
“Alberto Iglesias, composer of the cool, sometimes jazzy score, with its hints of melancholy and menace”
– The Telegraph
“The best film.. is Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy. A classy adaptation of John Le Carré’s novel.”
– The Guardian
Variety predicted commercial success for the film and praised the score; “…”Tinker” should do sterling biz. Techcredits are aces, especially Alberto Iglesias’ creepy, stealthy score, which plays off well against the sound design”.
To get a preview of the score, you can stream it in its entirity until it’s release on Monday.
