Danger! Daring! Disaster!
‘The Art of the Heist’ looks at one of cinema’s most beloved crime subgenres – the Heist film.
A seductive mix of gangster cool and cerebral ingenuity, the Heist film brings together a crafty ensemble of experts, a high stakes plan and the lure of the ultimate reward. Features classics 'The Asphalt Jungle' 1950, directed by John Huston, and 'Le Cercle Rouge (The Red Circle)' 1970, directed by Jean-Pierre Melville, alongside contemporary retellings such as Steve McQueen’s women-led caper 'Widows' 2018.
The Australian Cinémathèque at GOMA provides an ongoing program of film and video that you're unlikely to see elsewhere.
