Thief ★★★★½

likely to give 5 stars after another viewing. Oh Christ. It's new wave, it's Cassavetes, it's long long lenses, it's dialogue struck like a match along the tongues of sleepless Meisner students, a score that punishes, teals and blues and city lights that wink out into bokeh the size of tank rounds. It's Michael Mann baby! He's arriving!
