Movie #9 Sneakers

(1992, USA, d. Phil Alden Robinson)

This may be my favorite heist film. The movie is hilarious – but not in a slapstick way. It has smart humor consists of incredible writing and boasts a perfect cast including the late River Phoenix and Sidney Poitier. It’s about hacking and puts the new Ocean’s 11 to complete shame. Robinson also wrote and directed Field of Dreams. Two of the other writers wrote WarGames and went on to produce American Beauty. Watch this now. It’s an older movie but, apart from the soundtrack, you couldn’t tell.
