Three Days of the Condor is an acclaimed 1975 spy thriller from director Sydney Pollack (Tootsie, Out of Africa, The Firm, Jeremiah Johnson). Robert Redford (Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid) plays a lower level literary analyst who works with a team of other intellectuals analyzing global works of contemporary literature for the CIA. One day Redford returns from lunch to find all his co-workers dead and thus the story begins. Redford tries to uncover the reasons for the assassinations of his co-workers and stay alive himself- generally learning that he cannot trust anyone or anything connected to this government. The stories deeper political currents really take off when, in desperation, Redford kidnaps a middle class artist magnificently played by Faye Dunaway (Chinatown). Dunaway plays a woman totally alienated from her own life and social milieu - she is in what seems a difficult abstract relationship with a man, chooses to hide her best artistic work away from the public, and seems desperate for a sense of adventure or release.moreless
