Tomas Alfredson's adaptation of the classic John le Carré novel has had its release in the US pushed back until December, in order to keep it fresh for Oscar contention.
Over here in the UK, though, it's released tomorrow.
Critics have been quite keen on it, but general reaction to preview screenings seems to be less so. I think this has a lot of do with it being such a throwback. It's definitely a fantastic film, but fans of high-octane modern spy thrillers will obviously be disappointed.

Thread ahead: Here's those Scarlett Johansen nude photos nobody's mentioned Next thread: Spielberg announces a reverse-Lucas for "ET," "Raiders" Blu-rays Previous thread: You can officially add POINT BREAK to the list of remakes you never thought you would see.
When a movie is so convoluted that they have to bring in a pointless character just so the lead can spend part of the movie laying the plot out to him (for the benefit of the audience), something's wrong. I did, however, like how they ended it.
