Recommend a good Art Heist Movie

Excluding, Thomas Crown Affair. Any other good/creative ones out there?
(not that it was bad---TCA has been seen already--great flick)

Not exactly art-related, but The Hot Rock was a fun heist movie from the early 70's with a great cast.

The Brink's Job might be my favorite Heist movie in general with another great cast of character actors (Peter Falk, Warren Oates, Peter Boyle, Paul Sorvino among others). Well cast, great production design and period detail.

Asphalt Jungle
Riffifi (foreign with subs)
Topkapi
The Italian Job
The Great Train Robbery

Melville's "Le Cercle Rouge" is great.

Re: Recommend a good Art Heist Movie

One of William Wyler's last films, HOW TO STEAL A MILLION (1966), was about a museum heist. It starred Peter O'Toole and Audrey Hepburn. I've never seen it, though, so I can't tell you whether it was good or not.

John Woo's ONCE A THIEF (1991) was about art thieves, but I don't recall liking it at all. And I always leave that off Woo's filmography when I talk or write about him.

It was also not about an art heist.

All of Art Heist's movies are good. He's one of my favorites.

Not Ocean's 12.

Hudson Hawk is awesome.

If you consider music to be art and don't mind it being more of a thief thing than heist, then Diva fits. Still has some of the coolest cinematography out there 31 years later.

oh and Trance (2013).

Check out The Thieves from South Korea. The beginning has something involding with art. Movie does has some flaws but I did enjoyed it. You can check it out on Netflix.

Not a movie, but



features the heist of the Mona Lisa, and is written by Douglas Adams.

Ocean's 12 is definitely an art movie. I wouldn't call the other ones art movies but Ocean's 12 totally fits the art heist criteria.
