Three Days of the Condor
The story of one man’s struggle to learn who are his friends and who are his enemies, director Sydney Pollack’s critically acclaimed suspense-thriller Three Days of the Condor stars Robert Redford, and is out on Blu-ray for the first time in the UK on 11 April.
Three Days of the Condor is a sinuous tale of deceit and corruption, as well as one of Hollywood’s finest conspiracy thrillers of the 1970s. 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 fatal consequences.
Taught and engrossing, with astonishing modern-day relevance, the movie features fabulous supporting turns from Faye Dunaway, Cliff Robertson, John Houseman and the great Max von Sydow.
Here's the original theatrical trailer:
“a well-made thriller, tense and involving”
– Roger Ebert
“The action rarely falters, and at its best the film offers an intriguing slice of neo-Hitchcock.”
– Time Out
