It made me think first of the Harry Harrison SF tale Bill the Galactic Hero, but so far as I know that’s not also a film.

It's not SF. Nor is it animation.

No. OK, here is another hint: the trash originates from an airplane.

US Treasury agents hunt a counterfeiter; all of their plans go wrong, and ultimately they lose their chance.

Features this immortal dialogue, during a foot chase scene:
Quote:
Quarry: "Hey, why're you chasing me?"
Pursuer: "Well, why're you running?"
Quarry: "'cause you're chasing me!"

Also supposedly the source for this great behind-the-scenes discussion:
Quote:
Actor: "So why am I moving to the window in this shot? What's my motivation?"
Director: "Well, the camera is moving to the window in this shot. So if you go over to the window, you're in the shot, and if you don't, you're not."

Not the film I was thinking of. (I haven't seen it, so can't say whether it matches the synopsis or not.)

The only films I can think of are The Untouchables and The Accountant.

Definitely not The Untouchables, which I've seen; not intended to be The Accountant, which I haven't.

More hints: The film has a six-word title (well, five words and one acronym), and its score is by an '80s British band with a Chinese name that supposedly translates as "yellow bell".
