66. 3 Days of the Condor (B+)

Another of the classic 70s paranoia thrillers. It's less consistently atmospheric than The Conversation, but I'd rate it higher on the strength of the narrative (it's only decent most of the way through, but it has a great ending). From the unexpected detente with Max von Sydow's character to the moody, ambiguous ending, it's superb. The preceding film isn't bad, either, and has a lot of interesting old-fashioned espionage details, but it's not standout.

Cinema: 15
