Hi everyone,

I'm looking for movies about pickpockets (similar to Samuel Fuller's PICKUP ON SOUTH STREET, Robert Bresson's LE PICKPOCKET, and Jia Zhangke's XIAO WU).

I'll be considering these films in conjunction with a thread of Hong Kong movies on the same topic, as well as COLD EYES (a Korean remake of a Hong Kong movie that quotes Fuller), but would be grateful for titles and suggestions to other movies about pickpockets within world film.

Feel free to reply off off-list.

Thanks in advance for any leads!
