Popcorn Culture - Throwback: The Italian Job (1969)

On this week's Throwback, we're revisiting one of the most influential comedic crime capers in Hollywood history, The Italian Job (1969). A British crook named Charlie Croker (Michael Caine) is fresh out of prison when he comes up with a plan to steal gold ingots by conjuring a traffic jam in the streets of Turin. Like all good heist films, the Mafia is also involved. We discuss the way this classic film has aged over half a century, the surrealness of watching young Michael Caine chew scenery, as well as some of the film's surprisingly modern twists.
