Format: DVD
In his 1979 novel "Shibumi" (part political thriller, part cynical attack on Western civilization and part satire of the thriller genre), written at the end of that genre's possibly greatest decade, Trevanian explains the six parts of the Japanese board game symbolizing the concept of effortless perfection and inspiring that novel's title: Fuseki (the opening stage or strategic premise), Sabaki (an effort to quickly, efficiently terminate a problematic situation), Seki (a neutral standoff where neither side gains an advantage), Uttegae (a potentially sacrificial strategic maneuver), Shicho (a running offensive) and Tsuru no Sugomori (literally, "the confinement of the cranes to their nest:" the elegant capture of the opponent's stones).
Like other books published then and influenced by the shocking Watergate revelations, "Shibumi" asks what happens if government is hijacked by a secret association not bound by anything but its own interests and hunger for power. One of the most important novels on whose legacy Trevanian builds in his book is James Grady's "Six Days of the Condor," adapted for the screen by director Sydney Pollack in this hugely successful fourth (of seven) collaboration(s) with Robert Redford; costarring Faye Dunaway, Max von Sydow and Cliff Robertson.

Format: VHS Tape
This film is very relevant today, as is revealed in the ending (which I won't reveal). I agree with the reviewer that, after countless viewings, I can't put my finger on why it is so mesmerizing. There is Redford's performance, probably his most nuanced and all round best on film. There is Pollack's direction, which keeps the film moving so well that you don't have time to think about some of the questionable parts of the script, which nonetheless, serves the film well. The plot, while a bit convoluted, is superior in my opinion to that of the book on which the film is based. Max van Sydow is superb as usual, as a hitman who actually finds his job relaxing, and whose hobby is painting little ceramic figurines. He does not worry about the right or wrong of the cause ... only who is paying him. John Houseman in a small part plays a menacing career bureaucrat in the CIA. And Cliff Robertson is excellent as Condor's contact. You wonder if he is Condor's friend or not. Well, watch the film.
This is not one of those films that, because it is a suspense film, you might not view again after you know the ending. "Condor" is delightful upon repeated viewings, even if you know the ending and can recite many bits of dialog by heart. Again, I can't exactly say why, but has to do with the contributions of the people I enumerated in the previous paragraph. In "Condor" the whole is more that its quite considerable packet of parts. It is one of my favorite films of all time. I'll never tire of it. I don't think you will either.

Format: DVD
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.

This has all the elements of all the great films from the late 60's & early 70's including, most importantly, an unresolved ending ...which works. Something that only the boldest filmmaker/producer and studio would even dare think about let alone actually do in this day and age.
The pace is great...until we get to the obligatory love scene. I get the whole ...we have to include a love scene for all the female members of the audience...thing ....but the film grids to an embarrassing halt when this scene rears its ugly head. Pun intended. Yes I even get if you were a female and a handsome guy like Redford kidnaps you at gun point with some crazy conspiracy theory ( especially when conspiracy theories were NOT in vogue and those who were, were either wacko's left over from the McCarthy era or anti-establishment/hippy types)... the first thing you want to do is after the guy enters your life in a violent fashion you then allow him to enter your body. The politics of making money won over back then (as now) but now we have to live with this scene forever stuck in the middle of this really nice spy thriller. What are you gonna do...? If it serves the story, great, but if it serves ONLY the box office.... ARRRGGGGGGG!
Some nice acting turns by Dunaway and Robertson. Great photography and locations.
Nice clean transfer. Pretty lame "Love scene" basic menu artwork.
Absolutely NO extras other than the trailer.
