“I don’t think you’ll live much longer.” “I may surprise you.”
Sam Seder of the Majority Report joins ForrestJ. Andrew WorldConan Neutron, and Kristina Oakes to discuss about Sydney Pollack’s 3 Days of the Condor (starring Robert Redford and Faye Dunaway), a taut and stressful 70s spy/political thriller that shows that a lot can happen on your lunch break. 

1975 was “the Year of Intelligence” and the year that the Church Committee began investigating the CIA. This film and the novel it was based on, which only came out a year earlier, couldn’t have been more prescient. 

Faye Dunaway and Robert Redford are their peak here in 1976 starring in Network (which we have covered!) and All the President’s Men (which we strangely have not) at the same time, and the tale unfolds with Hitchcock level suspense and a slow boil of intrigue.

There is a conversation at the end about resources that could have been written or said yesterday, but it is from 47 (!) years ago. 

Crazily we’ve never covered a Pollack movie before this.
