How about "The Oligarchy Robs the Middle Class"? 

Oh, that's right, it's not a movie, it's reality.
And the "corporate profiteers" are leading the way.

The 50 Best Gangster Movies of All Time

We take a look at the big-screen robbers, hit men and hoodlums who made their mark

By Glenn Kenny
Special to MSN Movies

The crime movie is almost as old as the motion picture itself: See the 1903 movie "The Great Train Robbery," a depiction of that event which ends with one of its robbers pointing a gun and shooting into the audience. That movie paved the way for both the Western and the crime movie in general. One offshoot is the gangster picture. Gangsters come in all shapes and sizes, as illustrated by the moonshine antics of the bootleggers in "Lawless" versus the cold efficient machinations of the hit man played by Brad Pitt in "Killing Them Softly." These two new gangster pics are a testament to the durability of the genre. Up next are 50 great ones to help you bone up on all its variations.
