5.0 out of 5 stars One of the definitive films of the west ever made., 17 Sept. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
One of the best westerns ever made. A real classic and a must see film. Clint Eastwood is at his magnificent best both as an actor and as a director.

5.0 out of 5 stars The ultimate spy story brought to life by a masterclass of acting talent., 23 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Brilliant and absorbing. The episodic nature of this adaptation allows the story to build and develop over time and the attention to detail and period is first class. This was made in the time when the BBC had the resources and vision to linger over plot lines and be true to the book. Alec Guiness gives a masterclass of acting in his role of George Smiley, being both subtle and weary, as well as dominating the screen with every gesture and look. I love the way his voice alters depending on whom he is speaking to and above all the pace and diction of what he is saying is a lesson to all actors everywhere. My only caveat about this production, being a follow on from Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy is the recasting of the role of Peter Guillam by another actor for this production, which I thought was a shame. This series is absolutely wonderful and is a must see. I cannot recommend it highly enough.

5.0 out of 5 stars new landmark in superzoom., 14 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I love this camera. The 65x zoom is incredible, and for it to then zoom back to a 20mm wide angle is really amazing. The lens, with another twitch on the lever, goes to a really good super macro mode, which I am particularly interested in. This configuration of lenses does away with carrying around all those expensive extra lenses that you need with other cameras. It has a lot of features that I am still getting to grips with, but they all seem to be well thought out and helpful. You will find that you need to buy an extra battery to keep charged up, as all the electronics and mechanical motors use up your power quite rapidly, which is only to be expected. Quality of build is very good and it feels "right" in the hand and is intuitive to use. My one caveat, but this applies to all modern cameras, is that they are all designed for right handed people, and people like my wife, who is very left handed, have found it very difficult to use...gap in the market there for some enterprising entrepreneur!

Lovely book. Took a long time to come from America, but it was worth the wait. This photographer is well worth a look.
