Terrific spy thriller
10 July 2019 | by cardsrockSee all my reviews

Pollack, Redford, and Dunaway are a formidable trio in this Hitchcockian CIA thriller. Moments of tension are brilliantly filmed with grounded, realistic suspense. The plot is well thought out and you have to pay close attention to catch all the details. Three Days of the Condor is a classic entry in the always entertaining spy genre.
