Shot in one brilliantly choreographed long take, this recreation uses 96 actors to stage a botched bank robbery that took place in Stockholm in 2006. By focusing on the bystanders who watched the incident occur, it’s a fascinating study of how people respond in strange situations. And as a purely historical document, it’s hilarious.
