Honestly, I wasn’t sure what to expect from this flick but since I’m a huge fan of Michael Mann’s work, I was really eager to check it out. Eventually, even though it is one of his more obscure movies, I was actually impressed by the damned thing and, in my opinion, it is easily one of his best directing efforts.

Description: Frank is an expert professional safecracker, specializing in high-profile diamond jobs. After having spent many years in prison, he has a very concrete picture of what he wants out of life--including a nice home, a wife, and kids.

BradWesley123's Movie Journal- February 2015 (34 movies items)

" Netflix- 2hrs. 3min. First Viewing Thief is quite slow and incredibly cold, but it's never less than intriguing, and thrilling in several spots.
