It feels like a relic from another time, which isn't exactly a bad thing.

The Company You Keep is an effective, slow-burning mystery, boasting one of the most impressive casts of the last few years.

Redford proves that he's still capable of making the sort of provocative political thrillers that would make a younger generation envious.

Redford skillfully directs a cast so talented and comprehensive it threatens to overpower the briskly unassuming, but sharply written script.

Well-crafted, wellintentioned and well, just a tad dull, Redford's radical-chic-road-trip will appeal to the Senior Railcard crowd.

Welcome back, Mr Redford.

[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.

[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.

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.

Jason Anderson
The Grid
April 26, 2013
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.

It tends to sag a touch in its third act, but it's a solidly engaging thriller thanks mostly to its ridiculously talented cast.

Redford the director keeps things moving smoothly, avoiding too many lengthy monologues while still getting the point across ...

April 26, 2013
Whether RR's too old, as many have suggested, for the more thriller-ish elements here, there's no doubt that he's very fine and still seriously charismatic, and that Lem Dobbs' screenplay tackles weighty issues in a compellingly 'grey area' fashion.

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.

Where's a Sidney when you really need one? Either Pollack or Lumet could have easily injected Robert Redford's old-fashioned thriller with some much needed snap and suspense.
