Three Days of the Condor (1975)



Reviews and Comments

In today's paranoia-ridden era, Sydney Pollack's 1975 conspiracy thriller Three Days of the Condor has a devoted following, and so it should. This is an exciting, evenly-paced thriller that keeps its audience on edge, at the same time treating its characters like people rather than devices. The story follows the desperate efforts of a researcher (Robert Redford) for the CIA to save himself from death by his faceless enemies. It all starts when he steps out for lunch at what turns out to be a well-timed moment.
