Gary Oldman's slow-burn love

January 31st, 2012

Gary Oldman often ''feels assaulted'' after he has come out of the cinema.

The British actor was recently nominated for an Academy Award for his turn as George Smiley in 'Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy', and he admits he thinks the film gives him ''hope'' because it is a ''slow-burn'' movie unlike many other blockbusters.

He told Digital Spy: ''It gives me hope. It's an intelligent film, it demands something of the audience. It's not fast-paced, films tend to be over-cranked, too much cutting, they're too loud. I feel assaulted sometimes when I come out of them.

''I take my kids sometimes and I come out and I want to go and have a lie down after. I think it's so nice that this is a quiet, silent, slow-burn.''

Gary has previously confirmed there will be a follow-up to the first movie, which starred Colin Firth and Tom Hardy.

He said: ''I think they're whispering now that they might do 'Smiley's People', not so much as a sequel, because there's a book in the middle actually, but we've set up the world and we'll revisit.''
