Redford stars as Joe Turner, a junior analyst in the C.I.A., scrutinising published texts from around the world for coded messages. But once he discovers an unusual anomaly, his own existence comes crashing down, with every error carrying potentially fatal consequences.
Still a classic
- Three Days of the Condor review by AB
Still enjoy watching this film after so many years - great storyline (if a bit stretched to believe that Faye D would help the hero they way she does and how easily he gets to access Bell Telephone Labs, Hotel telephone exchanges and a top spy's house) but history has shown that the reasons behind the whole raison d'etre of the murders are plausible and indeed semi-true (despite some political denials over the Middle East!).
Max von Sidow is an early incarnation of Javier Bardem in No Country For Old Men and shows how character acting should be done.

And no CGI!

Tight script, tight everything. Wish they still made movies like this. And i have nothing more to say, I'm no critic!
