Top 5 Heist Movies

To qualify – the movie must revolve around or culminate in a heist.  It can start with a big heist, but everything from there on out should be because of the heist (Riffifi). Something like Goodfellas, where there is the Luftansa heist, doesn’t count because it is just a small piece of the puzzle.  I would include Bonnie and Clyde, as well as Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid in that mix as well, where it is about the characters, not the heists they are pulling.
