    I did a quick search to see if anyone had created a thread for this film yet but didn’t see one, so here we go!

    I had the opportunity to see this last night and thought it was great. I didn’t think it was as brilliant as Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, which is one of my favorite films in recent memory, but Philip Seymour Hoffman gives a beautifully restrained and immersive performance, very reminiscent of Gary Oldman.  Rachel McAdams was also very impressive!  

    Has anyone else checked this out yet?

    I saw it last week. I personally didn’t like Tinker so I do think this is better but no way in how I wanted it to be. Like Tinker, I felt it went to slow and just could have been more exciting. Hoffman of course was amazing and McAdams gave her career best performance. I felt they under used Wright or miscast here. It was ok it just needed a little more I felt. I don’t know. It just wasn’t my cup of tea

    I would love to see Philip Seymour Hoffman get a posthumous nomination for this, but it’ll never happen.

    I would too but this looks like a big year again for Lead Actor plus I would push for some other longshots like Ralph Fiennes

    I think Hoffman is definitely in contention! Combination of a terrific, universally appreciated performance, plus the industry’s admiration and deep sense of loss could solidify a nomination. I’m not sure if this film will really stay on the radar enough for them to remember, though, but a strong campaign could keep his name in their minds.

    I loved the movie.  Hoffman is stellar and MCAdams gives great performance.  I really though Grigoriry Dobrygin should be added to supporting actor list he gave great performance in very difficult role
