The heist flick against which all others must be measured. A crew of Parisian hoods attempts an impossible jewel theft and, in a justly legendary half-hour mid-film sequence, they pull it off. But getting the loot is one thing. Getting away with it is another. A masterful display of nerves and expertise from director Jules Dassin and a Gitanes-puffing cast. -LG
