Thief
 
(1981 / dir. by Michael Mann / 126 minutes)
 
Sunday, April 1, 7:00 pm / CERIA 365
 
Enter through the front door of CERIA, near the elevator.
 
Michael Mann’s big screen debut bridges, per critic Keith Uhlich, the “grit” and “gloss” of crime films from the 1970s and the 1980s, streamlining two decades worth of American movie-making innovation into the clean-as-a-whistle existential saga of ace safecracker Frank (played by James Caan, never better). Every character in the film only gets one name, and if you’re still coasting on Jim Belushi’s performance as the second Mitchum brother in last year’s Twin Peaks revival, you can see him here in his film debut (as Barry), in addition to the late, great Dennis Farina (in his first movie role, as Carl) and Willie Nelson (looking about as old as he does today and with two acting credits already under his belt) as Frank’s ex yard buddy Okla. Tuesday Weld plays Jessie, the woman Frank loves.
 
The fourteenth in a series of historically significant (and always entertaining) film classics, screened every other weekend throughout the semester.
 
Free and open to all UNM students.
