You can skip movies 10 times but never go back.
A bookish CIA researcher finds all his co-workers dead, and must outwit those responsible until he figures out who he can really trust.
A movie about sinister forces at work in the CIA with big scenes set at the World Trade Center and in a Ford Bronco? It's like the nexus of all conspiracy theories!
The shadow of Watergate looms large over this story of agencies within agencies, secret organisations shaping the world around us. The Nixon scandal was the springboard for Hollywood to produce a number of high quality thrillers exploring similar themes, all wrapped in a healthy dose of paranoia.
Robert Redford puts on a superb display as the man-on-the-run constantly looking over his shoulder with the CIA hot on his footsteps. He keeps the tension in place from the moment he walks back into his office and discovers every single working colleague has been murdered whilst on the lunch-run.
The idea behind the film from Redford's point of view is a little far fetched although he brings a lot of credibility to…
"...November - Not Autumn, Not Winter, But In-Between"
This to me is the whole key to Three Days Of The Condor, a panoramic spread of earth tones, dull oranges, beiges, rough textiles, brick, grey skies, damp weather systems. There have been few films before or since which really caught the way in which a front moves through Sprawl of the United States Eastern Seaboard, so that the same large-scale event happens in slightly different ways at slightly different times in New York City and Washington D.C., how it sets in and moves along, out to sea. Three Days Of The Condor feels like November, maybe just after Thanksgiving, but right before the full onslaught of XMZZ Spirits (at least in…
I may have mentioned before that I find Robert Redford's eyes to be beautiful. He has a little sadness in them, just the right amount, and a little squint he does that denies you just the right amount of the whites. They're blue, but they don't stand out like some blue eyes (cough Newman cough). They're subtle, but they are very expressive. With a face that seems prematurely lined, with such a famously handsome countenance, his eyes still stand out somehow. They are a work of art. I always find it distracting when he covers them with glasses, because they distract from the way his face naturally frames his eyes to be perfect little metaphysical windows. They put new meaning…
Now that's how you do a 1970s political thriller. Dark, mysterious, and still as relevant today as it was 40 years ago.
I don't remember yesterday. Today it rained.
Sydney Pollack and Robert Redford might not have been the greatest director/actor duo in film, but they managed to put together some solid films with a few great ones in the mix. This is one of them. A political thriller based on James Grady's novel Six Days of the Condor. It was changed to "3 Days" for the film because Redford doesn't need 6 days to pull off this sort of shit.
Screenwriters David Rayfiel and Lorenzo Semple Jr. adapted a near perfect political thriller from the novel. They manage to take Redford's character, Joe Turner, and put his life in immediate danger without him knowing the reasons behind it or…
not particularly notable in any way. not bad.
The director, Sydney Pollack, doesn't have a knack for action pulp; he gets some tension going in this expensive spy thriller (and it was a box-office success), but there's no real fun in it. It may leave you feeling depressed or angry. Robert Redford plays a New York-based researcher for the C.I.A. who accidentally turns up a clue to the existence of a renegade conspiratorial network within the C.I.A. organization and becomes everybody's target. With a miscast, subdued Faye Dunaway as a photographer who shoots bare, wintry scenes and is meant to be half in love with death. Not a girl to jazz things up. In the film's high point of flossy artistry, Redford and Dunaway go to bed together,…
Innocuous CIA researcher Robert Redford runs out one afternoon to pick up lunch for his officemates, and returns to find them all slaughtered. For a guy who literally spends all day reading spy novels to make sure the authors reveal no classified information, Redford handles himself pretty well, dodging killers, making free calls from public telephones, and outwitting his own bosses, who are responsible for the murders. Of course, it helps when you look like Robert Redford and can convince the woman you kidnapped (Faye Dunaway) to cover for you and drive you around (he doesn’t let his murdered girlfriend stand in the way of a good time in Faye’s boudoir). Deliciously helmed by Sydney Pollack (TOOTSIE) in the Big…
Part of my 5 Directors x 5 Unseen Films (12) challenge.
It's Christmas season in New York. Nerdy CIA analyst Joseph Turner (Robert Redford) goes out in the rain to buy lunch for five colleagues at their front organization in mid-town, the American Literary Historical Society (ALHS). When he returns, he finds everyone dead, gunned down in a merciless professional hit orchestrated by former CIA operative G. Joubert (Max von Sydow). Turner's task now is to stay alive and "come in from the cold."
This suspense thriller from director Sydney Pollack was based on author James Grady's 1974 novel "Six Days of the Condor." Redford delivers a riveting performance as the harried agent code-named Condor. He attempts to follow protocol,…
Solid conspiracy driven 70s thriller with Robert Redford on the run from shadowy CIA types. It gets pretty tense at times but perhaps the pacing has aged the film a little. I didn't get the feeling that Three Days of the Condor is a classic by any means. Redford is fine, Faye Dunaway plays a girl he randomly kidnaps during his escape and she's fine too. It's another one ticked off the watch list.
Well...it was a movie.
The story was mostly decent (besides the stockholm syndrome) and the execution was pretty half assed.
Not a fan.
Netter Verschwörungsthriller mit einem tollen Robert Redford.
I love love Christmas and Christmas movies!!
Movies set at, around or a scene at Christmas.
