The Cinema of Michael Mann is a series of comparative clips that editor Bill Rwehera has expertly put together to examine the shared themes of all Michael Mann’s movies. From helicopters and cars piercing through the night, money deals being negotiated, families being protected, violent nightclub scenes, graffiti symbolism all the way to those existential moments of reflection out to sea. Many of Mann’s films share similar moments that convey a golden thread of philosophy Mann appears to hold. It isn’t formula, but is a foundation for Mann’s philosophical approach. This painstakingly made compilation highlights extremely well the cross over themes of many of Mann’s films and makes striking observations that help the viewer to in part understand the architecture of Mann’s production and script process. As much as the visual editing is competent, you will also find the editing of the score, taken from the films, to be equally well done and thoroughly enjoyable to listen to.
