I seem to remember this movie working its way into old-era io9 conversations, maybe even Charlie Jane Anders referencing it as a pretty great movie. Even if she didn’t, I made a mental note, as I couldn’t recall ever having seen it, and I shouldn’t be missing out on something great from Michael Mann. Now, I have it on disc from Netflix to watch soon.
Made a mental note of this one too, more likely when coming across credits somewhere, but then mentally misfiled it as a William Friedkin film until this post. The correction made for a better post title. I can pick this one up from Netflix later, too.
Both Heat and Thief seem like good summer movies for me, at least for my current mood.
