It also means finding 90 minutes or more to sit and watch a movie is difficult. My Netflix queue is full of movies ranging from "Oooh...I always wanted to see that" to "Hmmm....that looks worth watching." I had no idea of what I might watch for this month's Blog Hop. My prospect for finding time was bleak...but then it happened.
While cleaning up Netflix profile, Nan said she and our son had an Odyssey of the Mind meeting on Sunday and at the same time I saw "Three Days of the Condor" was now available on the service.

Robert Redford plays a low level analyst for the CIA. He is part of a group that reads every book published and feeds the details to a computer to find out if pending CIA operations have been compromised.
One rainy day, it is Redford's job to get lunch for his co-workers. When he returns, he discovers that they have all been murdered. The rest of the movie is spent following Redford trying to unravel the mystery and figure out who he can trust.
For me, this has always been the epitome of 1970's conspiracy spy flicks, despite not having seen it for well over 15 years. It held up well for me on this viewing with stellar performances and a veritable "who's who" of 1970's cinema.
