FYC:

The Silent Partner (1978), not very well known but a quite entertaining Canadian film about bank robberies.

Bandidas (2006) is lowsy but its about bank robbers

Un flic (1972) haven't seen it but seems to be related to your poll.

Yikes, 'tough choice! I'll probably go with 'Dog Day' or 'Bonnie & Clyde,' or maybe 'The Town.' Oh, and I love this: Hollywood loves them some heists. :)
