Gary Oldman and crew were out in the freezing cold temps last night for the premiere of Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy at the Cinerama Dome.  It has to be Oldman’s best performance, I think, and in a career with so many great performances that’s really saying something.  I guess his Smiley in Tinker, Tailor is so powerful because Oldman utterly disappears, though he does it in a subtle way.  He can say so much with just his profile, hunched over shoulders, a glance to the right — how many actors are so in control of their instrument the way he is?  What is surprising about him, I guess, is what a nice, humble guy he is.  Here, Caryn James, James on Screen for Indiewire talks to Oldman in a video interview…watch after the cut.
