Diamond in the rough
8 May 2004 | by (Chicago, IL) – See all my reviews

This film is intelligent, moving, and in the end...well, I won't spoil that for you. It's one of Richard Crenna's very best performances, and definitely in Angie Dickinson's top 10. You get a rare and chilling insight into the life of a suburban thief. We are disturbed, but also strangely sympathetic to this lost man. See this film and you will experience a wide range of emotions. Excellent writing and direction. Note: "Thief" can be very hard to find. You may have to trade for it. Good luck. Peter Chicago, IL
