"I don't remember yesterday. Today it rained."
One of the original my-government-is-trying-to-kill-me movies. Robert Redford plays Joe Turner, a CIA "reader" that mysteriously becomes involved in a government conspiracy well above his paygrade.
Let's take a moment to appreciate the amount of talent in this movie. Sydney Pollack is at his best behind the camera, presenting a story filled with intrigue, humor, tension and romance, all at their most appropriate levels. Each actor plays their parts flawlessly, as they're each able to bring something interesting to their respective characters.
Some of the plot is overly far-fetched, so the believably is certainly an issue, particularly later on in the film. However, when you get past that, this is an interesting watch, a classic that doesn't rely on fight scenes and violence to still feel intense. 8/10
