Tinker, Tailor, Solider, Spy has been heavily tipped for oscars and baftas
so i desperatly wanna watch it.
Man, fuck the Oscars and Baftas. They always choose the least interesting films to win their awards, since they're both run by stuffy Hollywoodized committees full of old men and traditionalists who masturbate over anything overly sentimental, kitsch and generally fitting of the "Oscar bait" description. Plus the fact they feel the need to seperate "foreign language film" to its own seperate category from Best Picture. They truly are like the TMZ and the News of The World of the film-world.
