It’s Christmastime. Bells are ringing, carollers are singing, and bookish CIA analyst (Robert Redford) is on the run from government assassins after narrowly escaping a massacre intended for him. That’s right. This holiday season, Neon Dreams once again brings you an incidental Christmas classic guaranteed to wipe that Hallmark-smile right off your face.
“Christmas remains in the background throughout, playing a supporting role, but it’s as important to the film’s overall impact as Tiny Tim is to A Christmas Carol.”
A nail biting thrill-ride from beginning to end, this deliciously cynical thriller set amongst the tensions of a post-Watergate world focuses less on political intrigue and more on the fear and paranoia of being hunted by an unstoppable force (Max Von Sydow essentially playing a government-appointed Terminator). Who can you trust when the enemy is all around you? In this case, the answer is the luminous Faye Dunaway, Redford’s kidnapping victim who is the only one who believes he isn’t crazy and might just be able to help save his life.
This screening and others are made possible thanks to our wonderful sponsor Hollywood Suite. As always this will be a fully licensed event featuring a fabulous on-screen pre-show. Be sure to arrive early!
