Larry Karaszewski Presents: Double Feature: 20th Anniversary! SNEAKERS, 1992, Universal, 126 min. Dir. Phil Alden Robinson. Martin Bishop (Robert Redford) is serving as head of a colorful team of electronic-security analysts when he’s asked by the NSA to acquire a mysterious black box from the Russian government in exchange for the U.S. clearing secrets from his past. However, Bishop and his posse of techno-wizards encounter complications as they begin to learn the true purpose of this ominous object. Both thrilling and funny, this espionage crime caper boasts a stellar ensemble cast (Sidney Poitier, Ben Kingsley, David Strathairn, River Phoenix, Dan Aykroyd) and raises strikingly modern questions about digital security and government involvement in technological freedom.
