“It’s never been clear why The Hot Rock didn’t get more love at its 1972 release. (Maybe because the city was simply an unfunny tableau of urban decline, not yet the object of nostalgic affection it would become.) Even so, the film is an embarrassment of riches.”
– The New York Times

THE ANDERSON TAPES

Directed by Sidney Lumet
Starring Sean Connery, Dyan Cannon and Christopher Walken

(1971) Everybody seems to be listening as safecracker Sean Connery decides to clean out ex-lover Dyan Cannon’s entire Upper East Side apartment building during the city’s deserted Labor Day weekend, with a team including electronics expert Christopher Walken (in his debut). 35mm. Approx. 99 min.

“I am full of admiration—for the superb pacing, the tactful understatement of the location shooting, the sharp feel of the city.”
