March DVD Spotlight: Caper Films

From bank robbers to jewel thieves to con men, the movies are full of stories about criminals trying for that big score.  All through the month of March, we're highlighting films from our collection that represent this undeniably entertaining sub-genre of the crime film.  We've got the granddaddy of them all, the heist film that set the template, John Huston's 1950 classic The Asphalt Jungle.  We've got Spike Lee's stylish, slick bank robbery film, Inside Man (2006).  From twisty, tense thrillers like Nine Queens (2000) and Before the Devil Knows You're Dead (2007), to comedic capers like A Fish Called Wanda (1988) and The Ladykillers (2004), there's something for everyone.

Other titles in this month's spotlight include:

The Aura (2005)
Dog Day Afternoon (1975)
The Good Thief (2002)
The Killing (1956)
Thief (1981)
Three Kings (1999)
The Usual Suspects (1995)
