And here is my review:
Title: Three Days of the Condor
Director: Sydney Pollack
Original Release: 1975
My Overall Rating: 3 stars out of 5
The movie's fun, set in New York and the DC area, realms most familiar to me. Rotary telephones and enormous computers abound, leading one to wonder what a 21st century update might look like (a TV series is in the works). Inaccuracies regarding area codes bothered me a little - only DC is 202, whereas Chevy Chase, Maryland would have been 301 in 1975. Langley, Virginia would have been 703. The movie would have one believe it was all covered by 202. Then again, any movie that allows me to be geeky about area codes is already winning. It's not the sort of film I want to comb over again for the subtle details but I enjoyed it.
Next month, everyone gets to throw a movie of their own choice into the pot. Here's the wrinkle for May, a fabulous idea from Mock: the week before our gathering, a trivia challenge on Friday, May 1st! Everyone is invited to post three clues about his/her movie for others to guess. Our next regular meeting is Friday, May 8th. I'll post the sign up list tomorrow. In the meantime, please visit this month's participants:
