(1975) dir Sydney Pollack w/Robert Redford, Faye Dunaway, Cliff Robertson, Max von Sydow [117 min]
This masterful evocation of 70s paranoia about government secrecy, centers on Joe Turner (Redford), a reader for the CIA who scours newspapers, magazines, and books from around the world for clues and secrets. One day, Turner returns from lunch to discover all of his co-workers murdered. At first he tries to get help from his colleagues, but he finds himself betrayed and on the run – the only person he can trust is a beautiful stranger (Dunaway) whom he compels to keep him safe while he tries to unravel the mystery.
