Thief (1981)

Director - Michael Mann

Mann’s debut big screen feature still manages to pack a neon-reflected-in-rain-soaked-streets-to-a-throbbing-electronic-soundtrack punch. Mann takes the downbeat '70s crime guy and drags him kicking and screaming into the '80s. James Cann stars as the diamond thief out to do one last heist, and is perfect in the role. Themes that are touched on in this film show up again and again in most of Mann’s future films, with Heat being the ultimate culmination of that. W O N D E R F U L.
