    "Mann turns the urban landscape that McCauley and Hanna traverse and inhabit into an alienating, isolating environ that reflects their lonesome inner psychology. Mann and cinematographer Dante Spinotti shun the city's most obvious landmarks, and instead turn their lens on the less charismatic corners of the landscape and the postmodern architecture."
