This week the film critic delves into what makes a good heist movie.

With films in the genre ranging from Ocean’s Eleven, The Italian Job, The Lavender Hill Mob (shown directly afterwards) and bizarrely even Wallace and Gromit’s The Wrong Trousers, Kermode looks at the elements of what makes a successful heist film, ranging from the mastermind to the actual job itself.

Mark Kermode’s Secrets of Cinema is on BBC Four at 21.00.
