The Anderson Tapes (1971)
January 2016 - Sean Connery: Lights, Camera, Action!

Directed by Sidney Lumet
Dyan Cannon, Martin Balsam, Christopher Walken

A lot has changed in the ten years John Anderson’s been in prison. When he cooks up an ambitious plan to burgle an entire luxury apartment building, he’s unaware the place is infested with cameras, bugs and tracking devices planted by various private and public agencies. A wry, funny, and suspenseful look at the rise of surveillance, this film marked Connery’s escape from Bondage. It also includes a young Christopher Walken’s first major film role.
