A mild mannered CIA researcher, paid to read books, returns from lunch to find all of his co-workers assassinated. "Condor" must find out who did this and get in from the cold before the hitmen get him.Written by

When Turner goes through the basement records storage room to avoid the rain on his way to obtain sandwiches for his co-workers, he leaves both the door to the room and the door to the alley open. Not only should the storage room door have been locked with a controlled key, but anyone with a secret or higher security clearance would have known to close the 2 doors and lock them after passing through. He did, however, appear to close the exterior metal gate. In any event, he should have known, as well as the receptionist, that security protocol would require him to come and go via the monitored front door. In fact, Turner himself could have been implicated in the murders since he left those 2 doors open, with no evidence that the metal gate had locked behind him when he left. See more »
Loved this film. One of the best from the golden age of cinema (1970's). Robert Reford was as his peak. Faye Dunaway's best role since Thomas Crown Affair. Not to be missed for those fans of 70's cinema... Really touches on Big Brother and the threat that a secret government entity lived and breathed within the CIA. Robert Reford's character embodied the unsuspecting paranoia that characterized that time. A very non-Hollywood ending will surprise you. The cinematography was top-noch (Owen Roizman). Nothing has come close to this film. This film has intrigue, suspense, and above all a moral conscience. It presents the idea that what does our government do, and at what cost?
