Notebook Reviews: THREE DAYS OF THE CONDOR

4 out of 5 stars

Sydney Pollack – 1975.

Director Sydney Pollack‘s. Three Days Of The Condor is 1970s cinema at its finest. Robert Redford is at his most charismatic and the Christmas setting helps add some wintry chills to proceedings. Faye Dunaway, Max Von Sydow and Cliff Robertson co-star in this twisty paranoia thriller. 

Pollack keeps the tension tight and makes the best of Lorenzo Semple Jr and David Rayfiel’s script. The wintry New York streets are the perfect setting for this tale and the grit and cold is brought to life by Oen Roizman’s superb cinematography. Dave Grusin’s score might be a touch dated, but it’s the perfect accompaniment to this very ‘70s thriller

.Three Days Of The Condor comes highly recommended.
