Thief ★★★★

"What are you doing in your life that is so terrific?"

Michael Mann's first film was a very good start for the director. James Caan puts in a damn good performance in the lead role and Robert Prosky and Tuesday Weld are also really good. The film is well shot, has a terrific score from Tangerine Dream, and several great scenes throughout. The story is good too and the ending is just spectacular. Michael Mann has gone on to make a few movies that are better than this one, but Thief is an impressive debut. 8/10
