Parents need to know that Three Days of the Condor is a fairly quiet, tense spy thriller from acclaimed director . Released when the nation's wounds from the Watergate scandal and Nixon's resignation were still fresh, the movie was shocking at the time; today's more jaded audience is less likely to get emotionally involved when the far-reaching-conspiracy premise isn't surprising anymore. Violence includes a lot of murder and assassination with guns that mostly show small amounts of blood without other gore, although one gunshot in the throat is shown. Language is infrequent but strong, including "f--k" and "son of a bitch." One sex scene shows kissing, caressing, and the woman's bra briefly.
Following the idea that Three days of the Condor may really convey deeper message. Would this ever be allowed by the matrix? Luckily I think yes!
In this sense “Three Days of the Condor” had a (small) educational aspect, though it certainly was not the only influence which lead to this. Other people, teachers, books, features have contributed more or less. It is always a sum of things, where only one single item will not be enough. Like if you are watching an “anti-war” movie, some may simply enjoy the action, but never get to think about what war can do to real world people. Other may get triggered to object to serve the army. It is never just black and white.
