Thief

£3.99

Product description

Brilliantly directed by Michael Mann, Thief features one of James Caan's finest performances as the titular protagonist who plies his trade in Chicago. After his fence is killed and the Mafia begin to breathe down his neck he realises he must use all his skill and wits to survive if he is to outwit them. Robert Prosky plays the menacing Mafia patriarch who forces Cann to work for him. Tuesday Weld, as his girl, captivates with a sincere, understated performance. The scene in the diner where he woos Weld has become a classic. The movie pulsates with a raw intensity and an air of menace hangs over it all like a pall. Mann was meticulous during his research for the film and talked to actual thieves to get the feel of authenticity during the heist scenes. The film is also remembered for the magnificent score by Tangerine Dream. The music was an intrinsic part of the film's success. Thief foreshadowed the urban thrillers of later years such as Collateral and Nicholas Winding Refn's Drive. See it!
