Robert Redford is Joseph Turner, codename Condor, who reads books for the CIA. He develops a hypothetical "agency inside the agency" scenario that is much too close to reality; someone decides to eliminate his entire section. An attempt to be "brought in" teaches him that nobody can be trusted. He kidnaps Faye Dunaway, who fortunately develops a case of Stockholm Syndrome and provides invaluable assistance. Top notch spy thriller; received an Oscar nomination for Best Film Editing.
