Crime thriller directed by Steven Soderbergh. Set in 1950s Detroit, No Sudden Move (2021) centers on a group of small-time criminals who are hired to steal what they think is a simple document. When their plan goes horribly wrong, their search for who hired them, and for what ultimate purpose, weaves them through all echelons of the race-torn, rapidly changing city.

Curt Goynes: You said a man wants to see me.
Jimmy: Alley out back.
Curt Goynes: He can’t come in here? What is he, white?
Curt Goynes: So what’s the score?
Doug Jones: We’re sending a man that works in an office to pick something up from that office and bring it back to his home. You are part of a babysitting team watching his family while he does it. No one gets hurt. Three hours of work.
Vanessa Capelli: Do you think I’m a schemer, Ronald?
Ronald Russo: I think you have ulterior motives. But I find that sexy.
Vanessa Capelli: Oh, I get it. So, this is my scheme, is it? Don’t kid yourself, Ronald. We both know who you’re really f***ing here.
Ronald Russo: How could you say that?
Doug Jones: Self-interest is the sincerest form of flattery.
Ronald Russo: If Frank is involved, you can let yourself out the door.
Doug Jones: Everyone has a problem with Frank these days.
Ronald Russo: Who’s everyone?
Doug Jones: For our purposes, no one.
Curt Goynes: You seem worried about how you might be described.
Ronald Russo: Let’s be clear, the only thing I’m worried about is this thing getting f***ed up because of you.
Curt Goynes: What’s that supposed to mean?
Ronald Russo: It’s not your fault. You were born like that.
Curt Goynes: Born like what?
Charley: What’s with the f***ing eye?
Curt Goynes: Sometimes when people lie, they tend to overexplain. Kind of thing.
Charley: Both sides lose people, Watkins loses his twenty-five K. And both blame Goynes. But not for the deaths because that’s, you know, people.
Ronald Russo: [as they enter the house wearing masks and holding guns] Good morning. This is a typical morning. Nothing changes. Okay? Now, what would you do now, normal Monday?
Mary Wertz: I would make breakfast.
Ronald Russo: Well, there you go then.
Mary Wertz: What do you want?
Charley: Is that something you’d say, normal Monday?
Mary Wertz: I don’t know.
Matt Wertz: I don’t have the combination to that safe.
Charley: That’s okay, his secretary does. And from what we understand, you have the combo
to his secretary.
Matt Wertz: Do you mind if we have this conversation without my son present?
Charley: Do I mind? Pleasure.
Matt Wertz: [to Matthew Jr.] Hey, do not be a hero. Do you understand me? Do not.
Matt Wertz: Everything will be fine. I promise you.
Paula Cole: Yeah, sure. Another promise.
Matt Wertz: [referring to the document] Naismith. He moved on it anyway.
Paula Cole: “Anyway”?
Matt Wertz: Oh, Paula, this is bad.
Paula Cole: What do you mean “anyway”?
Matt Wertz: What?
Paula Cole: This is bad.
Matt Wertz: Are we finished? Can I go home now?
Doug Jones: [to Charley] Wait at the house after. I’ll call with instructions.
Matt Wertz: [referring to Jones] What did he mean “after”?
Matt Wertz: He said, “Wait at the house after.” After what?
Charley: After we get there.
Mary Wertz: I don’t want to know anything about you.
Ronald Russo: We’re more alike than you think.
Ronald Russo: What if you don’t want the things that you’re supposed to want?
Curt Goynes: Yeah, what are we doing here, Charley?
Charley: We’re following instructions. Living room. Are you helping me, or are you not helping me?
Matt Wertz: No, no, no, no. The man in the alley said that you would wait here, and he would call you with instructions.
Charley: Those are other instructions, which are none of your business.
Ronald Russo: [after Goynes shoots Charley] What the f*** was that about?
Curt Goynes: [referring to Russo’s gun] Put it down. Ronald. Ronald, just think.
Ronald Russo: I am not putting it down.
Curt Goynes: Alright. It was a setup, man. Think. Think. It’s a setup, man.
Ronald Russo: [on the phone] Are we getting f***ed here, Jones?
Doug Jones: Put the other one on. Put the other one on, now, or I will go so far up the chain, you will find yourself in all forty-eight states at the same f***ing time!
Matt Wertz: The safe was empty. Forbert must have taken the document home. I had to put something in the envelope.
Mary Wertz: You put us at risk?
Matt Wertz: What was I supposed to do?
Mary Wertz: What is wrong with you?
Ronald Russo: I got cash up front.
Curt Goynes: Yeah, which they were going to pick right back up off your corpse. He told me to kill everybody in the house. You too, Ronald.
Ronald Russo: Who told you to kill me? Jones? On the phone? Or before?
Curt Goynes: I know why Frank wants me dead. Why does he want you dead?
Ronald Russo: No f***ing idea.
Curt Goynes: This thing is bigger than Frank. I mean, think about it. They going to give us five thousand dollars for just three hours of babysitting? And the thing they want is in a f***ing safe at GM?
Curt Goynes: Try to kill me. Think you’re the only one that can make a move? Yeah, I can make a move too. They can consider this s**t a market adjustment.
Curt Goynes: Jimmy, I will put a bullet in your gut, flip you over this rail, and let you bleed out down there.
Jimmy: All I know is that a guy called me a half an hour ago. Offering me ten thousand dollars to turn you in. Fifteen thousand for the white guy.
Curt Goynes: Was it Jones?
Jimmy: He wasn’t white.
Matt Wertz: Organized crime? Like the mob?
Joe Finney: Well, I guess that’s the sixty-four thousand dollar question, isn’t it?
Joe Finney: Any reason for this man to have targeted you and your family?
Mary Wertz: He doesn’t like happiness?
Ronald Russo: [as Goynes leaves him in the car] Can I have the keys? I’d like to listen to the radio.
