and

Some obvious ones:
Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels
Reservoir Dogs
The Sting

I saw Entrapment the other day.
Stupid movie but still entertaining somehow, typical for a heist film I guess.

this isn't on that wiki list - 70s french flick about a bank robbery. i really enjoyed it. apparently there's an english version called the great riviera bank robbery - i haven't seen it but it's got that guy from lovejoy in - so it must be good.

Re: Heist Movies

sorry for the triple post, but i have to point out that when i heard that kubrick had done a heist movie as a young man i was very excited - this was a huge let-down. i have tried to get into it several times but just can't. and i watched barry bloody lyndon!

Each to their own i suppose.  I think it's quite an accomplished film given the age of Kubrick at the time.
