I couldn’t help but laugh when I read this particular blog, noticing that Michael Mann seems to have a thing for “shower scenes”. This blogger picks up on a nuance of understanding in Mann’s movies that until now, eluded me. I now feel enlightened. His post is called April Showers: Miami Vice.
In between Michael Mann (Public Enemies) movies I always forget that I really like his work. If you could reach into one of his movies you would be able to feel something… a cold surface maybe, vibrations from a loud noise or a drop of sweat hitting you. He has a real gift for atmosphere and texture. And apparently he has a thing for sex in the shower since two of Miami Vice‘s three big sexual scenes take place there.
