David Mamet takes this story of thieves along many twists and turns, some of which work and some of which don't. Gene Hackman plays the brilliant leader of a gang (Delroy Lindo, Ricky Jay & Rebecca Pigeon as Hackman's youngish wife), which pulls off complex heists for a despicable fence (Danny DeVito). After stiffing the gang on a jewelry robbery, DeVito forces the gang to go after a Swiss gold shipment and to use his nephew (Sam Rockwell) in the crime. No one trusts anyone and every step is shaded with the unexpected.Written by

After enjoying a successful collaboration on 'The Untouchables' (1987), David Mamet and Art Linson, as writer and producer respectively, decided to reunite to make a film noir-caper movie. The result was 'Heist' (2001), a smart, complex ensemble about a masterfully-minded gold robbery, which was made and first released about fourteen years after 'The Untouchables' (1987). See more »

It is a movie that must be watched with a lot of attention. There are so many aspects involved in each operation, that is almost impossible to keep in control of everything. For sure, the plot is well-done, the creativity is fantastic. The situation changes from one side to other, you never know exactly what is happening, if the thieves were caught or if they have a B plan (I believe they had C, D and E ones). If you want to have an idea about what I talk about, take a look at the "recommendations" they give a good idea of what "Heist" is about. Several surprises, at the end you could believe in anything...
