Location: Redstone Theater
Dir. Michael Mann. 2006, 134 mins. 35mm print of the original theatrical version. With Colin Farrell, Jamie Foxx, Gong Li, Naomie Harris, Ciarán Hinds, Justin Theroux. Michael Mann’s revival of the trendy 1980s TV series he helped create is not the nostalgia trip that might have flattered the masses, but rather a moody, at times florid doubling down on the original’s themes of confused identity, extra-national criminality, and undercover blues. Colin Farrell and Jamie Foxx update Sonny Crockett and Ricardo Tubbs as deeply hardened high-stakes vice detectives in elaborate pursuit of a South American drug lord who is in cahoots with a nasty tribe of white supremacists. Beginning with a cold open scrum in a dance club and ending with a deadly shootout to rival the one in Mann’s Heat, Miami Vice is action film as near abstraction, all smoldering glances, careening motion, and lurid digitized colors.
