#154: The Chicago Way, Pt. 1 - Michael Mann's "Thief"
Director Steve McQueenâ€™s new thriller WIDOWS is a Chicago-set heist film that puts to good use the cityâ€™s notorious corruption, which puts it in the company of Michael Mannâ€™s stylish 1981 feature debut THIEF. In this half of our Windy City-centric pairing, we dig into THIEF and its strangely compelling criminal protagonist Frank, played by James Caan, to see what the film says about the kind of city Chicago was (and is), and the kind of filmmaker Mann would become. Plus, still more feedback on Bradley Cooper's version of A STAR IS BORN.Please share your comments, thoughts, and questions about THIEF, WIDOWS, or both by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, or leaving a short voicemail at (773) 234-9730.Outro Music: Tangerine Dream, â€œFinal Confrontationâ€Learn more about your ad choices.

Is there a movie where anyone eats pizza before E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial? Together they discuss the Mount Rushmore of 1980s: Verhoeven, Schrader, De Palma and Friedkin, the creator of the Moviefone and also talk about The Keep. This episode is sponsored by Mack Weldon (https://www.mackweldon.com/) CODE: CHECK and MUBI (https://mubi.com/check) .
