    Sidney Pollack's Three Days of the Condor is a strong, post-Watergate, paranoid thriller that only really shows its age because, well, the computers are really old-fashioned, and because it has a couple of casually racist and misogynist moments. In fact, I dare say the whole idea of Robert Redford's character taking a woman hostage, Stockholming her into a lusty romance, and having her help him is a movie convenience (must have a leading lady) and probably only works because he's a pretty boy. Nevertheless, I wouldn't give up the editing on that sex scene for anything. (This is one of those movies that made me check IMDB to see if it had gotten an editing nomination, and I was right, it did.) One thing Pollack definitely gets right regardless of the gender politics of the script is the paranoid atmosphere that reigns in this story of a CIA researcher whose whole unit gets burned and killed, forcing him to run from even his own agency. You never quite know who's working for, and against, whom, and that lasts right to the final frame of the picture. 2 years 11 months ago

    I'm legitimately surprised at how few lists this film is on. It's an exceptionally well-crafted, tense thriller with quality performances and surprising twists.
