I've seen this so many times I'm pretty sure I could replace my blood with a liquidized 35mm print of Thief and still survive because I learned a lot more from Frank's collage than from most life-lessons by restrictive elders. Also, favorite edit in any film (ever): Frank admiring his work in medium shot, cigarette in hand, as Tangerine Dream swells, climaxing in a cut to paradise; a dream obtained, water rising in and out as Frank strolls along the beach, shirtless but with rolled-up slacks intact, with a family and a future, as endless as the sea.
