OBIT: Edgar Froese

When I heard that Tangerine Dream’s Edgar Froese had died I immediately thought of Michael Mann’s first movie, Thief, which starred James Caan. I may have heard of Tangerine Dream before that, but I wasn’t a fan of synth-driven atmospherics and certainly didn’t follow them.

But Thief grabs you with a terrific opening scene that propels into the story with terse visuals, no dialogue, and Tangerine Dream’s immersive and propulsive score. It makes me want to watch the whole movie again.
