Director Michael Mann may be best known for the crime film ‘Heat,’ but ‘his debut, 1981′s Thief’ is a moody precursor, out in a new Criterion Blu-ray/DVD edition now.


Out on DVD and Blu-ray this week is ‘Drive,’ one of the best and most surprising movies of 2011, and ‘To Kill A Mockingbird,’ digitally remastered and fully restored from its original 35mm film in a 50th Anniversary presentation.
