Data Hidden in the Poster for 'Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy'

Just perfect.

Hidden in the code that comprises Gary Oldman's face are names of characters/elements from the story. Smiley (below left eye), Polyakov (lip), agent (chin), Merlin (above mouth, left), Tailor (tip nose), (on the forehead) witchcraft, circus, scalphunter, Tinker. And a couple others.
