Some interesting names on the building buzzer that Redford is trying to use: "Argento", "King", "Brooks". See more »
Early in the film some packages are delivered to the office in
which Redford works. The security guard counts 5 of them, and says "Roger, fiver." The NATO phonetic alphabet uses "niner" for 9 in order to differentiate the sound from "fife" for 5. No retired military man, as the guard is supposed to be, should say "fiver." See more »
What does Operations care about a bunch of damn books? A book in Dutch. A book out of Venezuela. Mystery stories in Arabic.
What the hell is so important about...
[He stops as he sees the connection]
Oil fields. Oil. That's it, isn't it? This whole damn thing was about oil! Wasn't it? Wasn't it?
Yes, it was.

This film was very effective in maintaining the tension not only of the Condor's life and death mission to discover the reasons for the massacre of his colleagues but also the relationship between him and Kathy. The cast is uniformly good though Redford obviously carries the film. Von Sydow is again great as the strictly professional assassin. The entire film had an aura of authenticity that had me entirely engrossed. Recommended, 8/10.
