Brand New 4K Restoration! 'Every crime has a personality, something like the mind that planned it' says Vicki Anderson (Faye Dunaway, Network, Chinatown), the sleek insurance investigator trying to figure out the intellect behind a bank robbery so stunning, it has Boston's finest completely baffled. Sophisticated, handsome Thomas Crown (Steve McQueen, The Getaway, Bullitt) has only one worry--what persona he will take on tomorrow. But when the genius rogue pulls off a crime-of-the-century bank heist and finds himself pitted against a nemesis as powerful as he is, his devil-may-care attitude hurls him into an edge-of-your-seat game of intrigue and suspense. The Thomas Crown Affair has all the dazzling personality of the intriguing crime it portrays. The great Norman Jewison (In the Heat of the Night, Rollerball) directed this classic sexy thriller featuring top-notch cinematography by Haskell Wexler (The Conversation) and score by Michel Legrand (Summer of 42).

If you love the 60s and the transition from old school to a new direction, THE THOMAS CROWN AFFAIR had it all and stood at that pivotal point in filmmaking, but more importantly at a point of a society’s uncertain direction and future, but perhaps at a time we could just enjoy all the excesses and romance and special moments of a wink or a smile and perhaps a kiss. The film is unique because it stands frozen in time because of its transitional nature, yet at the same time, it stands entirely on its own for everything you see and feel watching this film and later, years later, savoring that special moment. I love it. I have to. It is part of me, and part of my youth and part of growing up. It’s in me. That’s the thing about films and times. Director Norman Jewison; this guy made films that touched me. I like almost all his film, but I love THE THOMAS CROWN AFFAIR in particular. This one is so special. There will never be a 1960s again. There will never be that special moment again. I love to think that I was there and felt it and now look back it and love those times.
It is so atypical of me to rewatch any movie, but McQueen possesses some kind if searching character that I call vision-driven. He is always looking, you can see it often on-camera, his gaze at an angle slightly higher than most of us, as if perceiving something bigger, higher that calls him, helps him, I'm certain. It is why he loves racing and says of it "racing is "life" and not for speed I do not believe, yeah I know ---yes, for necessary and sufficient adrenaline, but that's it. I think of it like a guide ---one which I believe I have, as do many self-reliant individuals living long and or having been raised parentless. Many Christians declare being in the possession of such active or perhaps divine forces --angels; while others ---forces, naturally or supernaturally in essence, and so on.
Regardless, a good movie taps into feelings we have, instinctual, basic, selfish, gratuitous power and a few Freudian "mechanisms."
I'm 63, raised on his movies. Never seen them all but about to finish up with his last 2 now. So excited. Been re-watching many old favorites.
Thomas Crowns Affair is a Classic story, with a few good twists, but best on Character and Literary Concept-Design-driven cinematic device/technique. Bah-Humbug on the love interest stuff but the law enforcement and actual criminal aspects are played exceedingly well, not overplayed. They could not be , given the Hitchcock-Holmes type nature of the crime, the way it plays out, rather convoluted , but if you think keywords: mystery, shrewd detective, elusive and brilliant criminal, near-perfect? crime, Hitchcock, Holmes and if you like these, here is the movie.
The Protagonist already has it made, so to speak, but after many risky capers, the action turns course, adverse, and then ..... Well now, it is a movie....
This movie will be just as good in 40,50 years. I believe charisma is timeless, and when integral to a good story, it can act as a catalyst, a constituent of Beauty. A thing is art is it not? when we say of it "this is beautiful"? This movie entreats us to delve into sights, sounds, ideas of Beauty, and to confound our aesthetic sense, emotion, the characters are so charismatic, and there is a plot with literary value. Hence an easy 5-star+
