Among movie genres, there is nothing as fulfilling as a well-made heist movie. The creative obsessives at FlavorPill agree -- their video essay methodologically details the exact steps necessary to pull off the perfect heist movie.

Beginning with penning a plan, the essay explores how these films progress: assembling a crack team, surveillance, diversion, execution and tieing up loose ends.

Check clips from almost thirty films, from "The Italian Job" to Steven Soderbergh's remake of "Ocean's 11," Quentin Tarantino's "Reservoir Dogs," Wes Anderson's "Bottle Rocket," and Bryan Singer's "The Usual Suspects."
