I have mentioned my love/hate relationship with Mamet once before, but it doesn't stop me from seeing his movies. Heist was a good flick, and had some new twists on how criminals would pull off certain crimes (oh, what you can do with a stack of books and a cup of coffee). Mamet also delivers the goods in terms of the script, and Lindo (who plays tough guy Bobby Blane) gets some sweet lines:
Bobby Blane: "There's nothing wrong with prayer. We knew this firefighter, this trooper, who always carried a bible next to his heart. We used to mock him, but that bible stopped a bullet."
Jimmy: "No shit."
Bobby Blane: "Hand of God, that bible stopped a bullet, would of ruined that fucker's heart. And had he had another bible in front of his face, that man would be alive today."
