The Bank Job

I like heist movies. The bank job is a splendid example of the form from England. It comes complete with a motley crew of robbers, a sordid royal angle, secret agents, corrupt and not so corrupt cops, and best of all, politicians who like to get tied up and whipped by hookers. The whole business is suitably complex and well played to make for some top rate entertainment.

I don't keep up with actors and directors much these days (Hitchcock is dead, you say?), and this one stars a bunch of them whose names I don't know, but all of them did a fine job.

On the Anchovy Heist-o-meter, The Bank Job gets a heaping bucket of salties, just the way I like it.
