At the Philadelphia Film Society preview screening of Tinker Tailor Solider Spy, I was handed a cheat sheet for the film — a guide of the characters, Secret Intelligence Service jargon, background on The Circus etc… Now let me tell you, I love these weekly film screenings, but I come to them from an 8 hour day at a mind-numbing, zombie-inducing day gig, which upon leaving, I have over an hour’s drive in rush hour traffic (gas at $3.43 a gallon) to reach Center City. I park a 15 min walk away from the theater in order to get free parking. With no time to stop for dinner, I am revived only by the Ritz Theater’s $2 mint hot chocolate.
