dir. Michael Mann. Making my way back through his catalogue. I now see the connections to HEAT (1995) more closely, thanks @phil_jablon. I forgot how great James Caan is, just so natural and comfortable. Seeing him in this makes me want to re-watch MISERY (1990) and THE GAMBLER (1974) again. Once again phone booths date the movie, but the heist is still brilliant. HEAT fans must watch this film.
