[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.
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.
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.
