52 Pick-Up

Directed by John Frankenheimer
United States, 1986
Crime, Thriller


In Frankenheimer’s adaptation from an Elmore Leonard novel, a crime is only as real as the images that prove it happened. A Los Angeles metallurgist (Roy Scheider, all business) and his political-candidate wife (keyed-up Ann-Margret) turn the tables on a trio of camera-wielding extortionists.
