"Heist strikes gold." - Jay Carr, The Boston Globe
Getting the goods? Easy. Getting away after the robbery? Veteran thief Joe Moore knows that's always the hard part. But he soon discovers that getting away from a life of crime is the hardest escape of all.
Gene Hackman plays cool-fire Joe, Delroy Lindo portrays his longtime sidekick and Danny DeVito plays the manipulative fence who saddles Joe with one last, difficult job in this ensemble-driven caper centered on an elaborate, split-second snatching of gold ingots by Joe and his crew. Writer/director David Mamet prowls the unsentimental avenues of film noir in a story rife with double-cross, triple-cross and trademark Mamet dialogue. For edgy, synapse-searing entertainment, go where the money is: Heist.
