Entering the entertainment industry as a television writer of 1970s cop shows, Michael Mann went on to become one of Hollywood's leading directors, enjoying great critical success on both small and large screens alike. After several years in television, Mann made his directorial debut with the moody heist-drama "Thief" (1981), prior to shaping the look and tone of the pastel-colored phenomenon that was "Miami Vice" (NBC, 1984-89) as its executive producer. He came into his own directing the stylized thriller "Manhunter" (1986) - giving audiences their first glimpse of Hannibal Lector on film - then demonstrated his versatility by helming one of the few faithful adaptations of the romantic frontier adventure "Last of the Mohicans" (1992). But it was the tense and visceral crime thriller "Heat" (1995) - which boasted the first-ever onscreen pairing of cinematic giants Al Pacino and Robert De Niro - that elevated Mann into the upper echelon of Hollywood directors. After helming the Oscar-nominated cigarette industry drama "The Insider" (1999), he went on to varying degrees of success with such films as "Ali" (2001), "Collateral" (2004), "Miami Vice" (2006) and "Public Enemies" (2009). Over the years, Mann rightfully garnered a reputation as a meticulous craftsman, whose slick imagery effectively captured driven, complicated characters at odds - often violently - with the world around them.
