'Thief'

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.
