The names of the producers of "Heist" don't sound very
Jewish; there are seven or eight of them, and they
have spent their careers churning out movies from
classics to late-night-cable soft porn. They all
wanted on board, I guess, when they heard that
hard-boiled Jew David Mamet was going to write and
The movie isn't completely unwatchable, I just don't
recommend it. One bright spot is that the villain is
named Bergman (Danny DeVito, who is married to Jewess
Rhea Perlman). Bergman, however, doesn't act very
Jewish, other than being greedy and lapsing into
Yiddish idioms a couple of times. The heroic team of
crooks, led by Gene Hackman, is forced into taking on
one last job, while Bergman's slimy nephew (Sam
Rockwell) tags along.
Hackman's too-young-for-him wife (played by David
Mamet's too-young-for-him wife, Judaism convert
Rebecca Pidgeon) betrays Hackman at the end and runs
off with the nephew.
Also on the team are a smart, strong-willed, powerful
negro (Delroy Lindo) and a martyr (Jew Ricky Jay,
a.k.a Richard Porath). The team pulls off the heist
without a hitch. Every time you thought they were
done for, it turns out to have been a brilliant setup,
and Gene Hackman gets away with the loot. Yay.
"Heist" has very little to offer that's new, unless
you count a few entries into the Official David Mamet
Anthology of Colorful Phrases, such as:
"I'll be as quiet as an ant pissin' on cotton."
"I want you to be as quiet as an ant not even THINKING
about pissing on cotton."
"She could talk her way out of a sunburn."
"(Gene Hackman's character) is so cool, when he goes
to sleep, sheep count him."
"Young, dumb and full of cum." (Also used in "Point
"As cute as a pail full of kittens."
"As long as a Chinaman's name."
"As cute as a Chinese baby." (huh?)
"Don't you wanna hear my last words?"
"I just did." *BLAM!*
Hey, it just wouldn't be a David Mamet screenplay
without them. Yeah, those are lines that clever guys
will be quoting around the water cooler for the next
week or so, but it's not like they're Shakespeare or
I have reviewed for VNN two other movies with similar
plots: "The Score" and "Sexy Beast." Those films are
also about a seasoned crook who is obliged to do one
last job for the crime boss, complicated by a brash
and annoying partner who is no more than a dirty
"Heist" is also similar to a 1989 HBO movie called
"The Heist," starring post-Remington Steele, pre-Bond
Pierce Brosnan. That movie also starred Tom Skerrit
AND Tom Atkins, which effectively ended all of those
rumors that they were actually the same person.
Anyway, I watched "The Heist" twelve years ago, and I
recall that there were the same sort of "gotcha" twist
elements present in "Heist."
"Heist" is just 110 minutes of predictable and
semi-predictable situations. The audience doesn't
develop any real attachment to the characters, and the
ending is less than mind-blowing. But then, I've seen
at least three movies just like it, and I like to
think I've become somewhat jaded to typical Hollywood
claptrap. The average White American viewer will
watch "Heist" and think "Well, it was pretty good, but
it was no 'Con Air'!"
Jews like David Mamet have no shortage of jobs lined
up, because the White American Rabble are becoming
more and more dependent upon the idiot box and the big
screen to tell them what to do. They don't care how
many movies like this are released, as long as they
have a few gems like "Armageddon" to enjoy between
ball games, beer cans and butt-scratchin'. A few
White people, on the other hand, are slipping out of
their Jew-induced comas and realizing what they need
