Deciphering Swordfish and Three Days of the Condor

There are good movies, there are bad movies, and then there's Swordfish, a movie that exists in a world beyond your world. It has everything: John Travolta, Halle Berry, guns, an incoherent plot, 128-bit DES encryption, a multi-headed worm. Dennis Fisher, Zoe Lindsey, and Pete Baker break it all down and then we mercifully move on to Three Days of the Condor, a classic of the 1970s paranoia genre and early techno-thriller with an all-time great Robert Redford performance.
