This collection of DVD reviews was inspired mainly by my visit to Democracy back in June and remembering that I hadn’t gotten round to watching Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy. It’s a genre I really do love and of which I haven’t sampled a great deal lately, so I took the opportunity to rent and borrow a few (mostly modern) examples and watch them over the past few weeks.
Up for your delectation we have the recent film version of Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, the David Hare-penned Page Eight, an adaptation of The 39 Steps from a few Christmases ago, and as my Twitter followers will know, the BBC’s Cambridge Spies which I simply adored.
NB: At the beginning of the year, I was determined that these weekend posts would be a regular thing, but that just hasn’t happened for a variety of reason. So they will continue to pop up on a random basis for the most random of reasons, just so you know.
