    Prometheus

    ★★★½

    His best and least academic film in decades. A sumptuous meditation on the dangers of Science and its infinite curiosity, and an ingenious and metaphysical variation on the slasher genre. It's equally as grand as it is mechanical, intelligent and cynical, seductive and calculating... like its robot that emulates Peter O'Toole.
    I chose to overlook its many flaws.

    Collateral

    Michael Mann is one of my favorite living American directors. He is probably the greatest stylist in contemporary cinema, but his films are always more than just formal experiments.
    In Collateral he creates a nocturnal space that is both poetic and menacing, and even with its flawed third act, Mann's film is a near cinematic masterpiece.

    Absorbing. And he was just warming up.
