|Sneakers (1992) || Phil Alden Robinson (director) |
|Complex espionage story, more about computers than mathematics.
However, mathematics is clearly an underlying theme and in one scene
the mysterious mathematician Gunter Janek lectures on mathematical
aspects of crytpography (using some technical terms but not really
saying anything substantial).
"It's worth noting that Len Adleman
(the A in RSA, and himself a number
theorist among other things) consulted
on the Janek lecture scene."
