Movie of the Year: 1975
3 Days of the Condor
Movie of the Year discusses 1975’s spy thriller 3 Days of the Condor!
3 Days of the Condor is a movie before its time in many ways. Starring a young, pre-Presidential, Robert Redford as a CIA agent who specializes in reading books to see if the dorks are up to anything yet. Well, I guess they are because before you can say boo a whole office of nice CIA people are killed for doing nothing more than trying to keep America and all her foreign oil safe for future generations. This leads the CIA agent to do literally the only thing you can do in this situation: kidnap the most attractive woman in a sporting goods store and begin to use your reading skills to get her to fall in love with you while you figure out this other thing with the spies and the getting shot at.
Remember that guy that lived in the tree on Game of Thrones who was also briefly in the beginning of the least bad recent Star War? That guy is in this movie and he is even better than when he was the tree or the old tent guy that got got by big daddy baby vader.
Max von Sydow. That’s the guy’s name but I was playing it cool because I thought maybe you wouldn’t know. “She’ll always be a Princes to me.” That guy. And he plays Bloodraven on Game of Thrones. I know that too but it’s a little inside baseball. All of that, and probably more, on an all-new Movie of the Year!
