Lucas' Review of Heat
A gorgeous and stunning feature, with talent slathered all over, from the director to the cast and the crew. A film not about thieves and cops and their kin, but about human beings, and with two fascinating protagonists that are, after all, just two sides of the same coin. A cinematic and generally artistic masterpiece from Michael Mann, with almost every scene being styling -but not too stylish, never indulging in an exaggerated reliance on style over substance. No, this film is as much style as it is substance. It's one of the best you'll ever see.
