Trailers from Hell: Josh Olson on Michael Mann's 'Thief,' Starring James Caan

Hardboiled! continues over at Trailers from Hell, with screenwriter Josh Olson introducing Michael Mann’s brilliant 1981 heist film “Thief,” starring James Caan. The film recently got the Criterion Blu-ray treatment.

In Thief, Caan is an expert jewel thief who disdains using
nitroglycerin to crack his safes but the director Mann brings his own
brand of pyrotechnics along for the ride; his 1981 heist movie, fueled by a
percolating synth score by Tangerine Dream, is a stylistic knockout, a
dazzlingly modernistic update to the traditional noir thriller. With an
iconoclastic supporting cast including Tuesday Weld and Willie Nelson.
