This was an excellent year for crime films—both in terms of quality and variety. This is a list of the ten best in this category, picked mostly by me after lots of hand-wringing and with lots of input from our office and my friends. Please note that this list is not ranked. That would have been much too difficult. Here are the rules for our selection: all films considered all had to be full-length feature films, released in theaters in the United States during the calendar year.

The Best 1980s NYC Books, As Recommended By The NYPL's Experts
What are the parameters? First of all, not every movie that features a prison escape or escaped prisoners is a Prison Escape Movie. One of the most important aspects of the Prison Escape Movie is an emphasis on the oppression and abjection promoted by the prison, as well as within the broken justice system that relies on carceral institutions. Chiefly, in a Prison Escape Movie, the prisoners attempt to extricate themselves for another chance at freedom, because freedom is absolutely worth the risks of being captured. Even though there is a wealth of great prison break television out there, from Escape at Dannemora to Lupin to—hear me out— White Collar , this list is only for movies.
Bet you have lots more time for it now, huh? Even after I've polished off another full season of Real Housewives in one sitting yes, thank you for asking, I've watched it at least a kazillion times , somehow I'm left with a couple more hours to kill before I'm ready to go to bed. Enter: books. I've been dabbling in lotsa different genres— romance novels , true-crime stories , YA books , you know the drill—but right now I'm super into books written by my favorite celebrities.
