  • In THIEF (based on the novel by Frank Hohimer), James Caan plays Frank, a top-notch jewel thief who has done his time in prison and now dreams of the good life. For him, that means a wife, kids, a house, and a car rather than a dangerous life of crime. However, by signing on to a final big-time heist for the mob, Frank unwittingly makes himself invaluable to his powerful underworld employers, who have no intention of letting him retire. Soon Frank finds himself trailed by both the mob and the police, unable to escape to the new life he so desperately wants. Continuing with his theme of people trapped in circumstances beyond their control, director Michael Mann creates a riveting, emotionally taut film that features an intense performance by Caan. With its outstanding action scenes, THIEF recalls such great heist films as TO CATCH A THIEF and THE THOMAS CROWN AFFAIR.
