Watched this soon after it first came out and just revisited again today. This is the start of the Tony Scott I love, and is probably in my Top 4 for him. The direction and editing are so crisp, not quite to the frenetic pace that he would soon become known for. A far better spy thriller than Enemy of the State, it's aged far better than I would have thought.
Love it. Redford makes it look easy. I'm a sucker for spy movies though, and think this was prime time for Tony Scott's technique. The ending is very touching after much cat and mouse play. Pitt and the other actors are excellent. A lovely film to look at.
