Some very good news for fans of John Le Carré or just smart spy films in general that don't end with the hero booby trapping his house in an overly elaborate and kind of stupid plan to capture an international criminal: two books by the master of the genre are on their way to the big screen, and one of them is a sequel we thought might have been left for dead.

Sometimes, the nomination is the prize. Even in more open years than this one (where many of the major prizes have been locked in for weeks, if not months), only two or three of the nominees have had a realistic chance of winning, with the others merely filling out the field. Which is not to say that they're not deserving. Indeed, quite often, the anointed winner is in that position because they're overdue, or they're part of a film that's sweeping the Oscars in general, or any one of a number of reasons.

It's something that will become clear to most of you in the coming weeks, with the film finally opening in the U.S soon, but to reiterate what we've been saying for a while -- "Tinker, Tailor, Soldier Spy" rocks. Meticulously made on every level, with a brace of impeccable performances, it works as both a gripping thriller and a moving character study, and it's one of the best films of the year. With the film already pretty much in the black thanks to a blockbuster box office showing in its native U.K where it opened back in September, anything from here on out is a bonus, and it looks like plans are starting to crystalize for a possible follow-up.
