Redford the director keeps things moving smoothly, avoiding too many lengthy monologues while still getting the point across ...
A drama that's more than a look at what happened to a generation of socially aware hippies whose new drug of choice is likely Lipitor.
You wish the movie were a little snappier, but Redford doesn't do snap; slow down with it, and enjoy the chase.
Directed in steady fashion by Redford, The Company You Keep manages to keep its multiple strands of plot - and the people caught in them - from collapsing in a jumble of confusion.
Well-crafted, wellintentioned and well, just a tad dull, Redford's radical-chic-road-trip will appeal to the Senior Railcard crowd.
[Director Robert Redford] deftly articulates the moral morass that can arise when idealism gives way to reality; he also has some very definite things to say about the way today's sensation-hungry, click-addicted media operates.
Dreadfully near-catatonic pace that never makes you feel like there's much at stake.
At the very least, this generation proves that they still have compelling stories to tell. (Complete Content Details for Parents also available)
Things come together satisfyingly at the end, but by then the urge to jump out of one's theater seat has been in effect for at least 45 minutes.
A tougher work might have seemed provocatively relevant in the tragic context of current events, but this film has a muted nostalgia for the days when bomb-tossing students had easy-to-pronounce names and might grow up to be as cleancut as Robert Redford.
Clearly, Redford has no trouble drawing talent; if he's ever interested in remaking Meteor or Midnight in Paris, he's halfway there.
Robert Redford -- who once was an active liberal -- is now a tired capitalist. He's also a worn-out egotist.
[Redford] still manages to tell an interesting story of family painted against a political backdrop. It's not going to spark any great movements, but it is worth a sit in at the local theater.
Redford's direction feels tighter and and less ruminative than it has in years, and his acting is still marked by a kind of intelligent alertness.
No matter how much slack you cut it, The Company You Keep never quite lives up to expectation.
This chase film combines elements of the thriller and newspaper procedural to create a contemporary saga about political idealism, stone-cold realities, and the repercussions of past deeds on future innocents.
The acting company Robert Redford keeps in The Company You Keep doesn't get any better. Movies rarely do either.
What with a cast that includes Robert Redford, Julie Christie, Nick Nolte, and Susan Sarandon, this might've been the most star-studded production of the year had it been made in 1975.
