Thieves Like Us (1974)

Directed by Robert Altman
Starred Keith Carradine, Shelley Duvall, John Schuck, Bert Remsen, Tom Skeritt
1974, USA, English

This isn't a movie about robbery / heist but a movie about thieves. A character study. We have a trio bank robbers who are after fame, wealth, of course, and coke (soft drink) :) The robberies are simple. Get in, take it and run away.


As an interesting note, when well-known director Robert Altman decided to adapt the book (Edward Anderson), he wasn't aware at all that Nicholas Ray had previously adapted it as the cult classic They Live by Night (1949).
