From the early sweat-producing works of Hitchcock to the excruciating pressure of Kathryn Bigelow's The Hurt Locker, increase your heart rate with some of cinema's greatest nail-biters.

The Thomas Crown Affair

Directed by Norman Jewison

Caper, Chase Movie, Romantic Adventure - Rated R - 102 Minutes - 1968

50 years after its release, The Thomas Crown Affair remains best known for its dizzying editing, using split-screen and mosaic tiling to create a sense of rapid, disorienting movement in its most high-energy moments, including two bank robberies. However, the story of a bored millionaire getting away with stealing even more money and screwing people over plays a little differently in 2018, which may be a consideration in the planned second remake, starring Michael B. Jordan.
