In this quirky and swiftly paced heist thriller, Sean Connery stars as John “Duke” Anderson, an ex-con recently released from prison who plans a major robbery of a luxury apartment building on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. Assembling a team of criminals, including “The Kid,” played by a baby-faced Christopher Walken, Duke meticulously organizes the heist, unaware that every move the thieves make is being monitored by various parties, including the FBI. Stitched together with surveillance recordings, wiretaps, and security camera footage, THE ANDERSON TAPES gives the audience a voyeuristic glimpse into the execution of an unexpectedly complicated crime and endures as a standout entry in the heist film genre, ahead of its time as a commentary on surveillance, for its use of “found” footage, and for its knotty network of perspectives.
