It was a thought that was hard to swat when I heard that Jeff Bezos — currently in the throes of what could be history’s most expensive divorce — had been spotted in Los Angeles with new flame Lauren Sanchez at impossible-to-get-into hot spot Felix.

caption “Ocean’s 8.” source Barry Wetcher/Warner Bros. There’s something about a good heist movie that makes going to the multiplex worthwhile. With the high stakes, and the top-shelf actors and directors who seem to gravitate to the genre, when it’s done right, it can be a thrilling cinematic experience.
