Is 'The Place Beyond The Pines' One Of The Great Heist Movies? Here Are Seven Others...

Ryan Gosling is tearing around on screen at the moment, bringing to 'The Place Beyond the Pines' the same still, brooding presence he displayed in 'Drive'.

Against him, Bradley Cooper as the cop determined to hunt down the person responsible for robbing the local banks.

There's no doubt about it, cinema-goers do like a heist. And just to prove it, here are eight films glorying in the genre, and bringing out the best of talents in surprisingly unsavoury circumstances. What's your favourite from this lot (yes, you are allowed to vote for 'Point Break'!)

The Place Beyond the Pines is in cinemas now.
