Directed by Michael Mann | 1981

With James Caan, Tuesday Weld, Robert Prosky

“With Thief, Mann arrived fully formed, establishing himself with a single feature, as one of the greatest filmmakers of his generation.”
—Ignatiy Vishnevetsky, The A.V. Club

A loner, independent jewel thief (Caan) is seduced into an uneasy alliance with a Chicago crime boss. But when the mob tries to further exploit the volatile thief, all hell breaks loose. Mann’s trademarks—the inky nightscapes, coolly realistic violence, intricately choreographed action sequences, a substrate of metaphoric themes—are all on display in his explosive feature debut, which features a pulse-pounding electronic score by Tangerine Dream.

New restoration approved by Michael Mann
