Dir. Michael Mann. 1995, 170 mins. Archival 35mm. With Al Pacino, Robert De Niro, Val Kilmer, Jon Voight, Tom Sizemore, Diane Venora, Amy Brenneman. Epic yet minutely observed, realistic yet stylized, jarringly violent yet soulfully restrained, Heat is the consummate Michael Mann film and among the greatest works of 1990s Hollywood. Pacino and De Niro play cop-and-robber and cat-and-mouse through several high-stakes heists in seedy Los Angeles, including a legendary, intricately choreographed street shootout that is as thunderous as it is thrilling. Mann’s script is journalistically researched while borrowing genre elements from the western and the melodrama, generally elevating the terrain of the action film to the urban sublime.
