On Favorite Heist Movies and William H. Macy

It's not the first time I've talked about heist movies and how I dig them here on the blog.

What's not to love? Over at Sleuths, Spies and Alibis, it's all about the heist, since fellow blogger Diana Renn's YA novel TOKYO HEIST is out this week. It sounds like a great book, right?

My favorite heist movie has to be The Maiden Heist--William H. Macy is just brilliant in it. I think it's the Robin Hood factor that gives heist stories their great appeal--taking back what belongs to you (even if it sort of doesn't), and sticking it to The Man (who doesn't want to do that, especially on Wednesday?).

Tell me: what's your favorite heist flick or book?


  1. I recommend this Maiden Heist movie--Marcia Gay Harden's pretty good too.

    Will check out Rififi...
