The Mike's are taking us to 1981 to watch James Caan break into safes and act the crap out of Michael Mann's first feature film, "Thief" Listen in as Mike Butler and Mike Field discuss the skill and talent that Caan displays on screen as anti-hero, safe cracker and ex-con, Frank. From his monologue in the diner scene to his dialogue with the other characters. The Mikes make the argument that he may have won the Oscar for playing Sonny Corleone, but this is his best role. James Caan seems to agree. Field and Butler also talk about the touches that make Michael Mann films stand out; from the way he films night scenes and shots in general, to the crime storyline and attention to detail and knowledge that he is using real professionals (and professional thieves) to make his movie true to life and add an extra layer of detail. So grab your popcorn and soda, please notice the exits at the front and rear of the auditorium, and settle down for (Forgotten Cinema).
