Location: Redstone Theater
Dir. Michael Mann. 1995, 170 mins. DCP. With Al Pacino, Robert De Niro, Val Kilmer, Jon Voight, Tom Sizemore, Diane Venora, Amy Brenneman. Epic yet minutely observed, realistic yet thorough stylized, jarringly violent yet soulfully restrained, Heat is not only the consummate Michael Mann film, it is also among the greatest works of 1990s Hollywood. Al Pacino and Robert De Niro play cop and robber/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 both journalistically researched and borrows genre elements from everything from the western to the melodrama, and generally elevates the terrain of the action film to the urban sublime.
