Thief

A film by Michael Mann
Starring James Caan

James Caan is an expert safe-cracker who gets himself caught up with the Chicago mob. ‘Encouraged’ to do an insanely risky heist, Caan soon finds himself on the wrong side of a mob boss. Shot on location in Chicago, Mann’s neon noir (complete with Tangerine Dream soundtrack) is as much a thrilling caper movie as it is a guided tour along the streets of Chicago. Oh yeah, and they blow up The Green Mill.

A professional safecracker, who specializes in high-profile diamond heists, plans to use his ill-gotten income for a nice retirement. But when he signs on with a top gangster and then tries to quit, the mob comes after the thief and his girlfriend.
