Barris was 100% bullshitting, but yes, a good movie.

It fell into the strange enough to be truth category to me. I never was sure.

Smuggler gets greedy and attracts some high-powered attention. They use and fund him through a series of misadventures as he learns and flies by the seat of his pants and survives by pure charisma and a talent for fast-talking. In the end, he gets burned to protect one of his employers as he causes the downfall of another.

Sounds like Solo: A Star Wars Story! Which I felt was underrated.

Nope! In this one, there's no happy ending, as he leaves his wife to keep her safe, and is tracked down and killed.

Nope. This one is a lot more recent... within the past 5 years.

Nope. Another hint- of the two organizations that he worked for, one had him killed, and the other totally burned him to try to avoid an endgame that happened in any case.

With an assist from my brother (who picked it up on DVD yesterday), and Wikipedia's synopsis, I think this might be American Made (2017)

Synopsis:

A fire engine seems like the perfect getaway vehicle for a team of bank robbers. Until they get mistaken for the real thing, and jeopardise their escape and loot.

Despite having two characters who are self-professed arsonists, it's a comedy. Quite an old one too
