Heat

Heat ★★★★★

"dead tech, post-modernistic bullshit house."

Michael Mann's grand thesis statement on every possible component of his career both leading up to Heat and subsequently following it's thematic threads. exists on the direct interaction of aching cosmic romanticism, genre filmmaking, broad philosophical self-integration of the isolating life styles of men trapped within themselves and the systems in place to suppress them, wrapped up by a longing for a meaningful connection made unattainable by a self-made code of non-commitment and emotional repression, this is a poetic, inward looking, monumental work of pure cinema, legendary shit.
