“Newsflash, BAM: Crime does not pay! Don’t let this criminally entertaining series of heist film influence you to go a-robbing and a-looting when you leave the theater. Avoid the sticky ends and time in the slammer by simply living vicariously from the cinematic thrills of these robbing hoods. Getaway this summer with 22 solid gold heist movies curated by myself and the team at BAMcinematek.”—EDGAR WRIGHT

Is there any genre of film more inherently exciting than the heist movie? The high risks, big scores, breathless getaways, and million and one ways a robbery can (and usually does) go wrong: there’s suspense, action, and drama built into every frame. From heavy-hitter classics to cult treats, palm-sweating thrillers to merry caper comedies, this series brings together some of the tensest, coolest, most unabashedly entertaining films ever made.

Edgar Wright’s Baby Driver is in theaters June 28.
