Film Review : Three Days of the Condor (1975)

IMDB score – 7.5
RT Score – 87%

Academy Award Nominee for Best Editing

Sydney Pollack’s spy thriller about paranoia and the CIA hit me weird. I love Robert Redford and Max Von Sydow but I thought the whole plot to this one was a little half assed. An argument would be that the film was set up so that the viewer didn’t know any more than Robert Redford’s character. I can see that. I just really didn’t care that much about what happened due to all the instances of the CIA knowing just about everything even though the film was set in the early 70s. I’m sorry but it didn’t work out like that. The acting was great, especially from Redford and Von Sydow but it just fell flat to me.

5/10
