    Peter Travers Rolling Stone

    The Interpreter bristles with the smart, steadily engrossing tension that marked such 1970s goodies as "All the President's Men," "The Parallax View" and Pollack's own "Three Days of the Condor." show more

    Mike Clark USA Today

    With major stars, a name director and grown-up subject matter, this middling drama is less a movie to recommend with vigor than to covet on general principles. show more
