Duration: 2h 2m Rated R Director: Michael Mann

Michael Mann’s bold artistic sensibility was already fully formed when he burst out of the gate with Thief, his debut feature. James Caan stars, in one of his most riveting performances, as a no-nonsense ex-con safecracker planning to leave the criminal world behind after one final diamond heist. Finding hypnotic beauty in neon and rain-slick streets, sparks and steel, Thief effortlessly established the moody stylishness and tactile approach to action that would define Mann’s later work.

Thief  is showing with Misery (both in 35mm) as part of our Two-for-Thursdays double feature series.
