In Sydney Pollack's critically acclaimed suspense-thriller, 3 Days of Condor, Robert Redford (Spy Games) stars as CIA Agent Joe Turner. Code name: Condor. When his entire office is massacred, Turner goes on the run from his enemies...and his so-called allies. After reporting the murders to his superiors, the organization wants to bring Condor in - but somebody is trying to take him out. In his frantic hunt for answers, and in a desperate run for his life, Turner abducts photographer Kathy Hale (Faye Dunaway, The Thomas Crown Affair), eventually seducing her into helping him.

Even with an abundance of flares and feather-cuts this this film is timeless. It raises so many issues that are still relevant today. This is one of Robert Redfords finest performances but it is Max Von Sydow as the hitman that steals the picture. Cannot recommend this highly enough plus it includes great footage of inside the twin towers.

For some reason this film is yet to get a UK release, but I have this Dutch DVD which is R2 and of good quality. Sydney Pollack was too modest to describe his own film as a classic but that's what it is. The only problem with it is Redford's looks which always make him seem out of place in any "ordinary" role. Also, the sexual politics are somewhat dubious. It does have a great ending which bravely concludes on uncertainty, whatever the lead actor's matinee looks may imply.

The Special Features menu has the most annoying interface I've yet encountered. You try pressing the feature you want. Nuts!

But when you eventually succeed, you'll be rewarded with a fascinating documentary on the talented Mr Pollack. What is surprising is how many films you've seen and enjoyed over the years that you didn't realise were directed by him. Oh, and Bobby Dearfield is a favourite of mine too, Mr Pollack, so despair ye not!

This is a favourite film of ours from the past, and we settled down to watch it in anticipation. Just as good as ever....the only problem was we kept getting flashes of foreign sub-titles on the screen - has this DVD been originally sub-titled, and then re-mastered? We bought this as new, so were a bit surprised by this. It was irritating, but other than that,we were satisfied with the purchase..Brilliant film - would recommend this to any Robert Redford fans.

The perfect companion for all movie enthusiasts is THE ROMA VICTRIX WINE BEAKERCalix Imperium, Roma Victrix Pewter wine beaker

I first saw Three Days of the Condor (1975), Sydney Pollack's spy extravaganza is one of the smarter '70s thrillers, mixing its anti-government paranoia with a coherent plot, great cast and ace direction.

Pollack and writers Lorenzo Semple Jr. and David Rayfield craft a thriller that flows smoothly, even if its plot threads get a bit tangled. Pollack makes great use of silence and ambient noise in his set pieces: the opening hit, Turner's slug-fest with a Company goon and a tense elevator ride with Joubert. The biggest detriment is Kathy, a useless character clearly shoehorned in as a token love interest. On the other hand, Pollack and Co. can't be blamed for covering all their bases.

Robert Redford is perfect: handsome, a brainy whiz kid and a scrappy fighter, he's more than a match for his perfidious bosses. Faye Dunaway gets a lousy character, developing an acute case of Stockholm Syndrome that makes her jump into bed with Turner within hours of her kidnapping! Cliff Robertson gets one of his best roles as the reptilian spymaster, and Max Von Sydow's amusingly detached hit man makes a delicious villain. John Houseman turns up briefly as a CIA bigwig.

Three Days of the Condor is among the best of the '70s spy thrillers. It maintains the government skepticism of its peers while remaining at least internally plausible, and is plenty entertaining to boot.

Format: DVD
A revisit to an old film I enjoyed. This was filmed shortly after Watergate when conspiracies and hatred of the government was nationwide. Until that time, belief in government and its beaurocracies was strong, however, it soon changed.

Robert Redford plays a CIA operative, a little bit smarter and able to put one and two together. He is a reader for the CIA in a building listed as a Literary and Historical Society. At that time, a secretary sat at the front desk and buzzed people in after looking at a monitor. Security was in a little hidden wall to her right. Not smart, when one day three men, one posed as a mailman, walk in and shoot everyone in the building. All except, Redford's character known as the Condor. He comes back from picking up lunch to find the entire crew dead. He calls central headquarters and is told to meet in an alley in an hour. He runs into a man with a gun, and he knows all is not well.

Condor kidnaps a young woman, steals her car and keeps her captive with him until he can figure things out. Of course, a romance develops, and she ends up assisting him. The woman is a young Faye Dunaway. As the film progresses Condor starts to figure things out, his research has turned up a book translated into just three languages: Spanish, Dutch and Arabic. By the time we figure out those are the languages of major oil-exporting areas, he is on the run. Sharing info with his head cheese gives him a few steps ahead, and to the rescue comes a hitman. This is really an excellent spy thriller, well written, acted well, and the tension remains high. It is a good film to revisit,especially since we have oil nations to blame for a war or two.

A stylish, low-key 70s thriller carried by the man Redford. The first half hour is excellent, setting the scene and presenting Redford as a book-ish, happy go lucky CIA research operative. His co-workers are brutally murdered whilst he's out to lunch and upon discovering their bodies on return he goes on the run. The movie settles into periods of quiet contemplation and sudden bursts of action, as Redford becomes more and more paranoid. He develops a rather unusual relationship with the striking Faye Dunaway (who he takes hostage), and this occupies a lot of the middle period of the film. I got a bit lost around this point, but things start to come together towards the end, with the unsettling hitman Max von Sydow tying up some of the loose ends. I didn't enjoy Three Days of the Condor as much as some of the other crime / thriller movies from this period, but it is certainly enjoyable and if you are able to adapt to the slower pace, this is well worth a look. Redford's character is a little perplexing as at the start of the film he is a genius bookworm, and by the end of it he is wrestling villains, shooting guns and rewiring phone exchanges. Yet Redford is always watchable, charistmatic and frustratingly handsome. Damn him! I should note that the wrapping up of the story is particularly fascinating as it seems to be about 25 years before it's time.
