THIEF

Double Feature with BLADE RUNNER: FINAL CUT

(1981) dir Michael Mann w/James Caan, Tuesday Weld, James Belushi, Robert Prosky, Willie Nelson [122 min; DCP]
The feature film debut of Michael Mann, co-creator of Miami Vice and devotee of film noir’s chiaroscuro lighting effects, THIEF stars James Caan as an expert jewel-thief drawn into becoming a mob operator so that he can pull one last heist and retire. Predictably, things do not go according to his plan.

“It’s one of those films where you feel the authority right away: This movie knows its characters, knows its story, and knows exactly how it wants to tell us about them.” – Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

“A slick Chicago crime-drama with a well-developed sense of pathos running throughout.” – Variety

“The slick, stylized look later became a Mann trademark in the MIAMI VICE and CRIME STORY series and in films like MANHUNTER and HEAT.” Kerry Fristoe reviews Michael Mann’s THIEF for Brattle Film Notes. Read More →
