Why watch this film?

How to Rob a Bank is another of Netflix's ventures into the true crime documentary universe. Here, we're in 1990s Seattle, and the best bank robber in the world has it all: looks, charm, an extensive hideout in a treehouse, and an incredible ability to disappear using Hollywood-style makeup. But as the police close in, his once carefree life turns into a suffocating trap, and he is forced to risk it all in one last heist. A film that follows everything we've seen in true crime documentaries but with an extra flavor when we come across an exciting story with a structure that goes beyond the obvious.
