The Anderson Tapes (1971)

Director: Sidney Lumet. Cast: Sean Connery, Dyan Cannon, Martin Balsam, Christopher Walken. 99 min. Rated PG. Action.

I was expecting more from the great Lumet. Another New York movie and another heist movie (components Lumet always obsesses about) - but even the old age of a film and the abundance of great actors shouldn't allow a robbery plan to be so pointless and idiotic. Signifying flash-forwards in the story by weird sound effects was a creative way of giving the viewer info. This was the movie that "introduced" Christopher Walken to us.
