One of the best Outshots in a while. Thorn captures the lonely beauty of Michael Mann’s film with pin-point accuracy. I heard this on the radio last night while I was on the road and had to watch “Thief” immediately as soon as I got home.
From Bullseye with Jesse Thorn from NPR:
Jesse recommends the 1981 noir Thief, starring James Caan. It’s a crime thriller about one last job, but it’s just as much about running from loneliness as it is about running from the cops. Director Michael Mann infuses it with a cool, dark beauty unlike any robbery film you’ve seen.
