Heat ★★★★½

ultramodern noir of ultramodern los angeles bathed in blues and grays, all glass and steel. the virtuous criminal living life on his own terms versus the cop bound to morality at the expense of his health and family. shakespearean is the most trite word on planet earth but applies here doubtlessly. score is absolutely perfect too, all miami vice reverbed drums and fretless bass and singing leads pulsing in the background.

two men bound by the inevitable
