Larry Karaszewski on


Released 1981
Distributor Warner Bros.

“The most erotic thing in their world was money”.   Imagine anyone trying to make a serious expose of the international banking business today! Even in 1981 nobody was interested.  Considered a  notorious turkey in its day, this financial conspiracy thriller looks positively prescient now. Not among director Alan Pakula’s best-realized works, but certainly deserving of another look, as Larry explains. The film can be seen online in its entirety here: Rollover
