Robert Redford’s fourth collaboration with director Sydney Pollack is a classic example of the paranoid conspiracy
thrillers that proliferated in the wake of Watergate. Redford plays unassuming CIA researcher Joe Turner who returns from lunch one day to find everyone in his department has been shot and killed.
Kidnapping a stranger (Faye Dunaway) at gunpoint, Turner hides out at her apartment, warding off threats to his life
from assassin Max Von Sydow whilst trying to uncover what it was he was working on that has made him a target,
ultimately uncovering a plot with global implications.
