Posted December 16, 2011

Mekado Murphy at the New York Times has done an Anatomy of a Scene: TINKER, TAILOR, SOLDIER, SPY. Director Tomas Alfredson breaks downs the ideas and challenges of a scene in which Peter Guillam (Benedict Cumberbatch) has been instructed by George Smiley (Gary Oldman) to steal a file from the Circus. Paranoia and suspicions run rampant, as Alfredson explains. As Murphy points out, "Mr. Alfredson discusses his interest in using windows as a framing device in the scene, as well as the ways in which he aims to create an air of suspicion throughout the film."
