List: Top 3 Movie Heists

This week on Episode 235 of the InSession Film Podcast, inspired by Steven Soderbergh’s Logan Lucky, we discussed our favorite heists in films. Any time you talk about Soderbergh and a new film, there’s a good chance a heist was involved. Even without knowing what Logan Lucky was about, you could probably assume that based on his past resume, so this just made sense. We have seen some great heists in the past, even in bad films, which makes this particular list even more compelling since we are talking about the actual heists themselves. On that note, what movies would make your list? Here are the one’s that made ours:

**Please keep in mind that we each had different criteria for our selections**


1) Stealing the Data – Mission: Impossible
