SCREENING

Thief

Sunday, Oct 2 at 5:30 PM

Location: Redstone Theater

Dir. Michael Mann. 1981, 122 mins. 35mm. With James Caan, Tuesday Weld, Willie Nelson, Jim Belushi, Robert Prosky, Dennis Farina. Mann’s debut film reveals a master already at work, and it offered James Caan one of his greatest roles. After one final heist, safecracker Frank hopes to leave his criminal past behind, but string-pulling Leo (a fiendish Prosky) has other plans in mind. Mann’s moody male melodramatics are in full effect, finding luminosity in Chicago’s dark alleys and mining the skittish pathos beneath Caan’s hustle and brawn.
