Top 5 Heist Movies
- Ocean's Eleven (2001): Probably the most purely entertaining films of this century, and very well made too.
- Heat: Michael Mann's brilliant cops and robbers story contains some of the more memorable realistic heists, including one of the best gunfights in film history. Perhaps a little long and a little unfocused, but it all works for me.
- (tie) Bob le flambeur and The Good Thief: Yes, I'm cheating, this is a tie. However, The Good Thief is a remake of Bob le flambeur, and they're both pretty good examples of the heist genre. The newer film has more of the modern conventions of heist films (and it does a good job subverting them as well), while the original helped establish the conventions of heist films (the original is a little slower than the remake, but still worth a watch). The ending of both approaches what Roger Ebert describes as "cosmic irony."
- The Killing: Before Stanley Kubrick made a name for himself, he worked on a couple of genre pics, this being one of the finest examples of film noir and heist films.
- The Bank: Underrated Australian caper flick that might be a little out of place on this list, but I wanted to put it on because almost no one has seen it and it's worth a watch...
