On Sundance Channel just now I watched Anatomy of a Scene about a scene from a movie I’ve never heard of – Stander. The film looks highly interesting, about an Afrikaaner policeman in Johannesburg in the mid-70’s. Somewhere in there he has a turning point and begins to buck the system, eventually becoming a bank robber. In fact, he would rob banks while he was a cop, doing the crime on his lunch hour and then coming back in the afternoon to investigate the robbery. Now I’m interested in seeing this film. It stars Thomas Jane, who also starred in The Punisher. I’ll have to hunt this up at the video store.
