The Bank Job back to product details

One of those rare movies that proves they DO make 'em like they used to: only better--smarter, faster, richer and more layered. In short, THE BANK JOB joins the don't-miss category. And it's not simply exciting, it's also surprising, funny, with a few shocking and/or moving moments, and plenty of context: social, political and economic. Congrats to the director, co-writers and cast for putting together one of the year's best films. I've seen it twice now, and it holds up beautifully. Watch the "Making Of" feature, too: full of fascinating info and ideas about the event and its time period: everything from how the costume designer worked to the way in which the talented writers managed to seamlessly meld fact with guess-work. This excellent little "extra" is also blessedly free of the usual (and constant) patting-each-other-on-the-back by the cast and crew that most Making-Of's are weighted with.
