Once a Thief

Set in Hong Kong and Vancouver, the story follows Mac Ramsey and Li Ann Tsei, lovers and professional thieves who are separated while fleeing the powerful Hong Kong underworld crime lord who raised and trained them. After being imprisoned in Hong Kong, Mac is forcefully recruited into a clandestine international crime-fighting unit by a hard-nosed, menacing Director. He is teamed in Vancouver with Li Ann, who thought Mac was dead, and her new fiancé Victor Mansfield, an ex-cop who is attracted to the unorthodox methods of the agency. Conflict flares between Mac and Victor as the trio take on their assignment. They soon learn that their principal target is their foster brother Michael Tang, who had been given Li Ann as his future wife and who has vowed to hunt down the pair for their disloyalty to the "family".

Once a Thief torrent reviews

Spencer S (au) wrote: Fantastic genre fair. Clearly written and directed by fan's of the genre who know how to work the audience's knowledge against them. Great place to see Mackenzie Davis at her start.

Jordan F (it) wrote: This film is definitely not for everyone but I like how the film is a mirror image of what a museum feels like. Your not gonna get all the story of these lifeless pieces of art, you just gonna get sides and its up for a lot of interpretation. If this wasn't a film about museums that format probably would have been extremely annoying. It's a slice of life film that doesn't really go very deep into its characters. They're just there, existing in this point in time. You can hint at what they're pasts are but you don't know it for sure. There's no profound change that happens, it just is.

Emily L (us) wrote: A few good scares, but overall a boring and lackluster attempt at a promising idea.

Walter M (ru) wrote: "Note by Note: The Making of the Steinway L1037" is a slight documentary that functions as a de facto factory tour as it follows the making of a concert piano from the selection of lumber in Alaska to the finished product at the Steinway factory in Astoria, Queens. Sadly, there is little history(at least, I know how Steinway Street got its name now). Instead, the documentary takes a broad approach by being more about Queens, and its reputation as a multicultural borough where the pianos are made by a diverse group of people, both neighborhood guys and immigrants, contrasted with Manhattan, where the pianos, outside the price range of the craftsmen, are on display at the store at the corner of 57th Street and Sixth Avenue for potential customers. All of whom are united by music that they all help to create.

Toni S (it) wrote: The generation this belongs to will hail it as a classic. It's well made and funny anyway...but probably not enough to watch again.


Nicole S (us) wrote: Never in my ENTIRE life of 20 years have I laughed this much...EVER...

Kat G (de) wrote: Finally...a good movie about what happens after marriage.

Leena L (us) wrote: Sigh. Who needs these films?

August C (ru) wrote: A muddled confusing mess of a film that has no rhyme or reason.

Olivia M (au) wrote: Having re-watched it's pretty problematic, but I did love it as a kid and some of that charm is still there.

Michael A (it) wrote: An interesting flick about the creator of the Frankenstein movies. Very good performances by the cast!

Kyle M (au) wrote: Upon first screening this film, I fell asleep halfway through. But I woke up later and decided that I wanted to finish it. I'm glad I did. It's a slow start for sure. The concept is more interesting that the execution in this instance as we watch an upper middle class family have a guest over for a short while. We know almost nothing about him but watch as he proceeds to sleep with the maid, the mother, the son, the daughter, and finally the father. Nothing very graphic. A passionate embrace here, a breast there. The homoerotic scenes are more implied than shown. Again, the concept is what's perturbing. And then the man withdraws away, leaving the family to behave in very strange, some very mystical ways. It was quite the scandal when it first came out, having been denounced by the Church upon release.
