Have you not seen any Michael Mann films, Craner?
“I love Los Angeles. Eighty per cent of it is unexplored. People who make films don’t go out into the city. They think they do but they don’t. You just drive down the right streets and you’ll see images of alienation. But they are beautiful images of alienation. They become paradoxical but they present themselves to you.”The smeary atmospheric shots of L.A. are good.
Another one I saw in the cinema when it came out. It's been on here recently and I couldn't make it through.The heist is fantastic. The smeary atmospheric shots of L.A. are good. I liked the music. But it gets far too distracted by the fact that Pacino and De Nero are in the same film. The basic idea - cops and criminals, they're basically the same! - seemed trite. It was too full of itself. Nobody wants to see Natalie Portman slit her wrists. Other things I can't remember now. It's one of my mother's favourite films.
Oh, didn't hear that. Shame ... maybe because he was not so big / known then - *ucking Studio's. it's kitsch y in it's way , but seeing what Dissensus crew does watch , maybe good for a ' what the hell watch something' night.The Keep was totally cut to pieces wasn't it? I think I read an interview with Mann about trying to piece back together a director's cut that was something like what was originally intended but apparently too much is totally lost and it simply can't be done.
