The Italian Job (1969)
This is not the remake. This is the original. This is the one with Michael Caine, with a soundtrack by Quincy Jones. You need this in your life if it’s not there already. Caine plays a London criminal recently out of prison looking to score one last big job in Italy. From there, we get a well placed dramatic plot culminating in a plan to steal $4 million dollars from the mob in the city of Turin.

This is a film for car lovers: the Lamborgini Miura plays an important role, along with the Aston Martin DB4. The starring role, however, goes to a fleet of three Mini Coopers, which perform above and beyond the call of duty. This is a work of art, so make time for it this weekend.
