Trivia

When they are reminiscing, Higgins asks Wabash whether he served with "Col. Donovan" during World War II - a reference to William Donovan, founder of the Office of Strategic Services and precursor of the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency. Wabash replies, "I sailed the Adriatic with a movie star at the helm" - referring to actor Sterling Hayden, who served with the OSS, running the German blockade of the Adriatic during WWII to get supplies to Yugoslav partisans.

Goofs

When the Condor is getting soaked by rain on his way to lunch, everyone immediately around him has umbrellas. There is a man in the distance to the right of the police officer, obviously oblivious to the rain and walks as if he is beyond the reach of the rain machines. See more »

Quotes

Joubert: Well, the fact is, what I do is not a bad occupation. Someone is always willing to pay.
Joe Turner: I would find it... tiring.
Joubert: Oh, no - it's quite restful. It's almost peaceful. No need to believe in either side, or any side. There is no cause. There's only yourself. The belief is in your own precision.

The best thriller I've ever seen
21 September 2001 | by (Arlington, VA) – See all my reviews

10 out of 10. And it took about 5 seconds to decide on that. This is simply a brilliant film. It's so smart, it doesn't feel like it has to explain everything that happens over and over again. And the story here is so deep and well-structured that it's possible to find several alternate movies inside the main one that could all work almost as well as the final product.

There might not be perfect films, but THREE DAYS OF THE CONDOR is as close to perfect as any film of the modern era.
