Influential, but too dated and disjointed to be really worth 90 minutes of your time today. The fake TV commercial bits are great.

Draws so heavily from The Driver with Ryan O'Neal and (especially) Thief with James Caan that it almost feels like a remake at times, but still a great movie in its own right.
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Was this the first movie to have short selling as a plot point?
"The cat's in the bag and the bag's in the river!"
Possibly the best movie ever made about NYC.
One of the few comic book movies that really understands comic books.
As close as we'll get to seeing what Cary Grant was like as a vaudeville comedian.
