Ordinary Decent Criminal (2000) – Theft

Despite it not being critically acclaimed I really was griped by this movie, it’s a bit tongue in cheek and the cheekiness continues throughout the film. It really isn’t something that you should be taking too seriously. And with scenes like this art theft it’s easy to see that this isn’t a gritty crime thriller in the slightest.

You can check out my review here, but I was surprised that the film really didn’t take in more people, it’s charming and fun. Obviously it’s not a historic account and doesn’t strive to be accurate but is more of a homage to the bad boy character of Martin Cahill, a modern day criminal hero among the average joe on the street.

In this scene we see the Ordinary Decent Criminals enter a gallery in unusual garb, something that makes them stand out like a sore thumb but it does hide their features, they blantly pick up the art and run out of the gallery, while bashing a few guards with the picture frames, all against the frivolous Yma Sumac – Gopher Mambo, a song that you can’t take too seriously in the first place. If you can get through this clip then the film might be for you.

And… in case your needing the full track..
