Holiday Movie Rec: The Maiden Heist

It is still the holidays, right? Well, if you are scrounging around for something to do with all your free time before the New Year begins, may I suggest:

Art + Crime + Christopher Walken doing comedy=
The Maiden Heist.

Obviously, I quite like the elements both separately and together. It’s a fairly good film, certainly passable holiday entertainment, but you probably won’t hear about it because the financing company had a bit of a
hiccup and poof went the money for promotion.

The Maiden Heist stars Morgan Freeman, Christopher Walken, William H. Macy, and Marcia Gay Harden in a comedy centered on three museum security guards who devise a plan to steal back their favorite artworks before they are transferred to another museum. It’s a labor of love, and the characters get into all the trouble you might expect and then some. It’s really worth it just to see Christopher Walken in a snorkel mask at the end. Just a thought if you don’t know what to do with yourselves over the break.
