SNEAKERS
1992, Universal, 126 min, USA, 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.


FIELD OF DREAMS
1989, Universal, 107 min, USA, Dir: Phil Alden Robinson

"If you build it, he will come." Phil Alden Robinson directs a fantastical baseball story, which was nominated for a Best Picture Oscar. Kevin Costner is a farmer who suddenly hears voices in his corn field and teams up with James Earl Jones, a reclusive writer. As they travel, Costner realizes he must transform his acreage into a baseball field. Burt Lancaster shines in one of his last roles. With Amy Madigan and Ray Liotta.
