Product Details

Product Description


Robert Redford and Sydney Pollack continued their longtime collaboration (the actor and director have worked together on Jeremiah Johnson, The Way We Were, The Electric Horseman, and Out of Africa, among other films) with this taut spy drama. Redford plays a reader for U.S. intelligence who becomes a hunted man after he is not among the victims of a mass murder of his colleagues. Faye Dunaway does solid work as the frightened and mystified woman whom he forces to conceal him, and Max von Sydow is appropriately cool as a professional assassin. That same, sustained tone of danger and expectation that made Pollack's The Firm so much fun can be found in this 1975 thriller, albeit with an appropriate dose of post-Watergate paranoia. --Tom Keogh

I received the product, but the whole 'get it within the next 48 hours using Prime' was a bogus as one could endure. Days turned into well over a week and some.

The only reason I made the order was to get the products in time before I departed. I was actually delayed in going and still did not get some of the overall shipment, and what did arrive was a nightmare to actually get.

So ... Prime was a waste and I hate, Hate, HATE ... I LLOOOOOOOAAAATHHHHeeeeee UPS.

Otherwise, the products were as advertised.

"A well made Thriller by Sydney Pollack"back in the seventy's with
Robert Redford as C.I.A. agent Joe Turner,who reads everything,Books

they were killed,he's teamed up here with Fay Dunaway gorgeous as ever,and
my Favorite actor of all time Max Von Sydow this guy is so Cool,and Cliff Robertson,
[Charlie] you have got to see that movie,seeing that this movie is about thirty or
more years old they have done a very good job with this Blu-Ray you can tell
someone really took the time with it,whenever you pause the movie there is a Bar

blu-ray for an old movie,even the picture Quality is Good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Redford movie ever Sept. 29 2013
By Bootsy Bass TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Great spy/ man in foreign circumstances type of movie. Faye Dunaway is strikingly gorgeous in this, and Redford is the reluctant spy. Great story based on a book called, I think, 6 days of The Condor. A must see movie

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great Redford offering July 19 2012
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I enjoy Robert Redford.... I wish they would put more of his movies into Blu ray (like Brubaker)Also make sure they are close captioned or subtitled for a few of us old fools that have their hearing damaged in the Military... I enjoyed this movie immensely...Lots of action and some mental exercise at the end of the picture...Like many of Redford's pictures. Much like the Spy Game... Thanks Amazon... great offering!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars This movie is very intelligent June 26 2004
Format:VHS Tape
I liked the plot and the technical twists and turns of this thriller. Robert Redford plays a cia employee who reads books to find possible codes. He finds patterns and trys to break them or alert the Cia to there existence. He comes across something that causes his whole office or team to be wiped out leaving him as the only survivor, because he was out to lunch. How he goes about trying to survive is very intelligent and entertaining. There is a dry romance between he and Dunaway. He is on the run and time is not on hand so there scenes are quick and to the point. I liked the dialogue it was also dry and to the point. It sometimes took a few minutes for it to sink in. A highly intelligent film with good entertainment value. Worth watching.

5.0 out of 5 stars The invisible government! Where? July 4 2004
Whenever I see this movie I always hear Roger Daltry's voice singing, 'can you see the real me?' Which is what a less loquacious Robert Redford tries to do after what may be one of the top ten movie opening scenes of all time, 70's, 80's, 90's or beyond.
Earlier reviews have fairly well constructed and described the plot but what's interesting is the unbelievability of it. Sydney Pollack keeps the heat on and the emotional cul de sacs plentiful as Redford tries to whittle down not so much the who killed all his coworkers but the why.
I believe alongside "Bullit," "French Connection," "Body Heat" and a few others, this is an essential movie both for it's time and our time. In light of Vietnam and Watergate, we just didn't blindly trust Uncle Sam anymore and were frequently reminded of the protest idiom, 'love your country; fear your government.' And for a captivating two hours, Redford is 'everyperson' ever profiled, searched, audited, traffic stopped, drafted and perhaps far worse. We didn't have to read George Orwell to know big brother was and is watching.
Cliff Robertson, a gifted actor denied his peak years because of pseudo-administration influence (do you remember 'Flowers for Algernon/Charley?), ironically plays the government role, as you would expect, brilliantly, and Max Von Sydow, is as always, superlative. I agree with some of the criticism of Faye Dunaway. She did better in other roles than she did here. It could have been Meryl Streep or Glenn Close as well, possibly better.
Essential movie if you want to know what you're talking about. Larry Scantlebury. 5 Stars.
