Heat ★★★★★

The remastered blu looks gorgeous. This film seems pretty timeless to me despite the beeper and outdated cell phone. I think this film gets the best out of it's very deep cast. I think it is Mann's best film and his most ambitious film to date because of all the many balls he was juggling with the many plots. There is enough plots to stretch out to a tv series which originally was intended for. It involves heist, vendettas, serial killers, romances, a character getting mistreated by their boss, a neglected child who tries to harm herself, a failing marriages, and good old cop dramas. Out of all of Mann's perfect films, this is the one he will be remembered for and that isn't a bad thing. I'm intrigued about his prequel book he is writing about these characters.
