Klute (1971)

Director: Alan J. Pakula. Cast: Jane Fonda, Donald Sutherland, Charles Cioffi, Roy Scheider. 114 min. Rated R. Mystery/Thriller.

New York City, that glorious haven of film-makers throughout the years. Add to that the setting of a 70s NYC, and it's hard not to enjoy the film, no matter what the story. Watching the odd couple of Sutherland as a private cop and Fonda as a call-girl in their younger days sleuthing the disappearance of Sutherland's friend, was worth the time; even though Fonda's therapy sessions in the movie go far too long. Makes one wish Alan Pakula (The Pelican Brief, Presumed Innocent, All the President's Men, The Parallax ViewSophie's Choice, ...) had lived longer and made more movies.
