The Anderson Tapes Details


This breathlessly paced high-tech thriller stars [[Performer~P10646~Sean Connery~seanconnery]] as Anderson, a career criminal who's just been released from his latest prison term. Seeking a quick financial turnover, Anderson uses mob funding to finance an ambitious robbery. With a gang of expert thieves, Anderson sets about to rob every wealthy tenant of a fancy East Side apartment building. What he doesn't know is that every move he makes is being monitored and taped by several law-enforcement agencies, who hope that Anderson will lead them to the Mob kingpins. Though the film may look like a "comment" on the Watergate break-in, The Anderson Tapes actually preceded that third-rate burglary by nearly two years. The Anderson Tapes boasts an impressive supporting cast, many of whom play wildly against type, including [[Performer~P38254~Alan King~alanking]] as an aging and infirm Mafia don. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
