Quick-Thoughts: Rififi (1955)

The classic motion picture that inspired a generation of heist flick copycats and spearheads, Rififi is the archetypal tale of how the hunt for riches and treasure can schemingly cause us to lose sight of what’s truly valuable in our lives. And, it goes without saying that this movie effortlessly has one of the greatest heist sequences I’ve ever stumbled upon.

Verdict: B

“Rififi” is now available to stream on The Criterion Channel.
