In case you’re one of the three people in the world who hasn’t heard, Grand Theft Auto V made its way into the hands of would-be crime lords everywhere last week. GENTILE was losing control of the situation, and he knew it. Mike claimed that no one answered the call, and that he let Mary’s phone ring for four straight minutes. A young associate cum up-and-coming thug (Jean-Paul Belmondo) is sent to help him make the trip across the border and the two bond, especially as the younger man knows the older man by his impressive reputation.

With that confidence, we have identified the thieves, who are members of a criminal organization with a base in the mid-Atlantic states and New England,” Richard DesLauriers, special agent in charge of the Boston office of the FBI, said. In the past year, as the economic slump has dragged on, robbers around the country are increasingly trying a new method to get their hands on cash. Exotic locales for crimes often add an element of adventure and wealth. One of the boldest and most successful robberies of all time, the Knightsbridge Security Deposit heist happened in London in 1987, when career criminal Valerio Viccei and a small group of accomplices armed with guns managed to make off with 60 million pounds in valuables and cash from safe deposit boxes.

Should a heist movie be mostly about planning and executing a heist and not sidebar into other issues. Selby and Campbell do a good job of creating a plausible scenario but there are still key details that have not been nailed down … and the thieves aren’t yet willing to spill the beans. (Although Notarbartolo sold his “inside” story to Wired magazine, the authors conclude that his account was an elaborate bit of fiction designed to minimize his own involvement and disguise the actual size of the heist.) Although the heist itself was allegedly a “perfect” crime, one small mistake (and a bit of bad luck) led to their almost instantaneous capture, which was almost disappointing to me as a reader.

The last heist revisited 34 Thomas Elsaesser, ‘American friends: Hollywood echoes in the New German Cinema’, in Geoffrey Nowell-Smith and Steven Ricci (eds), Hollywood and Europe: Economics, Culture, National Identity, 1945–1995 (London: British Film Institute, 1998), p. 149. 35 Richard Dyer, for example, argues that the rapid and often disorienting editing of shoot-out sequences in the Italian ‘spaghetti Western’ constitutes a pastiche of the genre as classically defined; these films ‘take a standard formal procedure of the Western and then exaggerate and intensify it, to the point that it is carrying most of the force’.

I'm not condoning it, but if one is going to go about robbing a vault, one should be as ingenious as these gentlemen. Farhana Begum, 19, who lives near-by, told the Evening Standard: “About two weeks ago - the weekend before it happened - there was an electrical cut. An estimated $5 million in cash and $875,000 in jewels were stolen, at the time making it the largest cash robbery ever committed on American soil. Yet, when the film arrived… the dynamic duo of film acting didn’t get together onscreen until late in the film and overall, truly spent little time together.

Honorable mention goes to The Great Muppet Caper which just missed the list despite its humor, romance and jewelry thieves. In the 1920s, it was the way Barnes arranged the paintings. But it goes beyond genre to become many things – a poetic hymn to Paris and the lives of its marginal, nocturnal denizens, a classical elegy of bygone chivalry and honor in a twilight world, and a wry exploration of the inexplicable operations of chance, as seen through the eyes of a soulful gambler.
