Higgins office is located in the World Trade Center. The balcony from which Turner watches Higgins being tailed by Kathy, figures in the documentary made by two French brothers who took the only footage inside the WTC after the two hijacked airliners had hit the buildings and before they collapsed.

This had everything a political thriller should have - excellent acting by Redford and Dunaway and a well-written internally-consistent plot. Robert Redford plays a CIA agent who read books - that's all, just read books. He gets involved with a CIA plot when all of his coworkers are assassinated.
I like this movie on several levels. The thing that stands out is that Redford isn't an "action hero". He stays ahead of the game - just barely - by using his intelligence. This make for a much more interesting movie than the simple-minded shoot 'em up of the current action heros.
