Robert Altman finds a sure, soft tone in this movie, from 1974, and he never loses it.

In many ways, Thieves Like Us is Altman's best work yet, his most stringent and evocative.

At times unbearably objective.

Thieves Like Us proves that when Robert Altman has a solid story and script, he can make an exceptional film, one mostly devoid of clutter, auterist mannerism, and other cinema chic.

Never portentous, never a mere spoof, this is a touching, intelligent, and -- in its own small way -- rather wonderful movie.

It is full of things to think about, that hang in the memory like the details of a banal crime story on page 32, which, though read quickly, won't go away. Somehow you know that this happened.

Altman may not tell a story better than any one, but he sees one with great clarity and tenderness.
