Three Days of the Condor

A bookish CIA researcher finds all his co-workers dead, and must outwit those responsible until he figures out who he can really trust.

Von Sydow gave that movie a lot of the gravitas you felt thru his cold yet human portrayal of the professional assassin. World-weariness times fifty.

I believe a lot of the window shots were dropped in afterward in this film—especially in the private home where MacGregor’s character works on the manuscript. Almost every window shot is a distraction from the main scene due to perfect focus.

Nobel

Lieutenant Erling Riiser is on his way back to Norway after a long stay in Afghanistan. Much has gone wrong, several soldiers are missing from the Hercelus-plane. After only one day in Norway, Erling receives a text message saying an old acquaintance from Afghanistan is in Oslo - which can mean only one thing: A woman's life is in danger

I've discovered a fantastic cable TV show: the Norwegian #NOBEL on Netflix. Afghan war fallout comes to Oslo. Writing and acting right up there with @BabylonBerlin, only Nobel portrays absolute realism while Babylon Berlin has stunning, hypnotic surrealism atop its grittiness.

W Season 2 Ep 9 #Ozark joined the first rank of cable TV writing. Insightful and true depiction of marriage/family, bookended by "Wichita Lineman." Bravo!

Helplessly Hoping — Crosby, Stills & Nash

Greg Iles
Writer
At the end of the day, probably the best CSN song. The purest, simplest, and truest expression of their unique harmony. And deceptively simple guitar by Stills.
