Compelling heist drama,
This review is from: Thief [DVD] (DVD)
The opening 10 minutes of this film are compelling; no dialogue, just the excellent soundtrack by Tangerine Dream and Michael Mann's stunning photography. Its a masterclass in how to start a film. Thereafter, the pressure doesn't let up, with excellent support from James Belushi, James Caan dominates the screen. Its a 1981 film but to my mind it doesn't date all that much; sure the cars are 1981, but the direction and production is bang up to date.
A cracking film, and worth 5 stars
