    I'm guessing it's the sole reason most people are watching this, but in case you didn't realise, it's Michael Mann's TV film which he ultimately remade as Heat six years later.

    It's almost impossible to judge it on its own merit having already seen Heat, and at the same time that's what makes it so fascinating to watch. If you're familiar with the remake you'll probably recognise every other line, albeit being delivered somewhat less skilfully - there's no denying…

    A marvellous mansion murder mystery movie with a mute miss, a magnanimous medic, a mischievous maid, a mustachioed man, a misfortunate mistress, a mistaken miscreant, a well-meaning meddling mother, a misguided murderer and a misbehaving mutt .

    If this was the only film I could watch for the rest of my life then I'd be okay with that.

    Damn, those 80s Trans-Am and IMSA GTO cars looked great.
