If you're a film fan, Bruce Goldstein has one of the most enviable jobs in cinema. As Director of Repertory Programming at New York's vaunted Film Forum, it's Goldstein's job to curate and acquire films for retrospectives, ranging from French Crime Wave, to Classic 3-D to Depression Era films.

As a new board member of the National Film Registry and Founder and Co-President of reissue film distributor Rialto Pictures, Goldstein is firmly entrenched in the film world. Yet it was an early passion for the medium that led him to where he is today. To celebrate Film Forum's upcoming Heist Films retrospective, we spoke to Goldstein about his unique position and forced him -- not at gunpoint -- to give us his Top 5 Heist Films in the series.
