Just like they do in heist movies, your Film Freaks quietly and meticulously planned this podcast, wearing masks, gloves, speaking in code, all the while planning the ultimate heist episode. Enjoy the thrills and chills of staying one step ahead of the authorities as Phoef and Mark take you through some of the best heist movies ever made – from the 1950’s all the way through to today. Everyone from Sterling Hayden, Marilyn Monroe, Alec Guinness, Clint Eastwood, Jeff Bridges, Robert Redford, and Jeremy Renner show up to prove that crime doesn’t pay (well, most of the time).
Warning: This episode contains some clips that have strong language.

It’s like walking around a small room, exploring every corner. It’s one of the hardest kind of writing there is. To make a small thing profound is a daunting task.
