Inspired by this famous (and NSFW) scene from Heat
, on Feb. 28, 1997, Larry Eugene Phillips, Jr. and Emil Matasareanu attempted to rob a Bank of America in North Hollywood, CA using body armor, automatic weapons and barbiturates. This documentary uses news footage, recreations, interviews, computer animation and a cheesy narrator to explain the chaotic hour that followed. There are some violent images.
Supplements: The chapter (starting on page 246) on the North Hollywood Bank job in this book
is excellent, and provides a nice summary of the pair's earlier robberies. Here is a Google map
of the events.
