Michael Mann’s Thief at FACT Liverpool

February 4, 2018

I’ve arranged a Ourscreen showing of Thief at FACT Liverpool on Saturday, March 10th at 12 noon. Thief is one of my favourite films, and I would argue one of the greatest crime films of the 1980s. The story behind the production of the film is fascinating, but I’ll talk more about that on the day as I’m introducing the film. You can book tickets through the Ourscreen website. Please note the screening only goes ahead if we sell enough tickets. Ourscreen kindly added Thief to their catalogue (as they did with William Friedkin’s Sorcerer last December) so I could arrange the screening. I’ll post a copy of my talk about the film after the screening, but why not come along so you can see it in person? Hope to see you there.

      Mann was at his best here. Some of his later films were overblown but Thief is note perfect. Caan is always good, but rarely found films that matches his talent. Thief was a welcome reminder of what he can do
