There's nothing more intriguing than a lady robber. A woman has apparently been knocking off banks left and right, at an amazing pace: Two on Wednesday, four yesterday. As I keep telling Jake, an attractive woman with a yen for money and thrills plus sleepy suburban banks equals pay day.

Gothamist's favorite movie about a blond femme fatale thief, though not strictly a suburban bank robber, is Femme Fatale, the woefully underrated Brian DePalma film from last year. Rebecca Romijn-Stamos and Antonio Banderas are hot, the photography is beautiful, the story is, as ever, a tribute to the Hitch.
