On the 12th installment of the special episode series called Breaking It Apart, I’m joined by David Quinones to talk about Michael Mann’s classic debut, 1981’s Thief. The film just celebrated its 40th anniversary, and it’s so easy to see its influence (as well as Michael Mann’s in general) on so many crime films that have come since. Puzzle pieces include Drive, Good Time, The Score and Gigli.
As always, SPOILER ALERT for Thief and the movies we discuss!
Writer / Director – Michael Mann
Starring James Caan, Tuesday Weld, Willie Nelson, Jim Belushi, Robert Prosky
