All of Michael Mann's films from the worst to the best

Michael Mann is one of the most important living filmmakers in the world, and the news of the making of each of his films tops the list of world cinema news. From the beginning of his activity until now, he has used a special style that he has slowly polished and perfected it. His masculine world and the story of the characters he defines are in perfect harmony with this cinematic style, and this is perhaps the most important achievement of Michael Mann over the many years of his career; That is, the harmony between form and content. In this list, we will review all the feature films of the famous American director Michael Mann. Not to be outdone is one of the most important themes in Michael Mann's films. Michael Mann's chosen men bear no resemblance to the people around us, but they are extremely sympathetic; The reason for this is their ability to have a deep understanding of world relations. These good people know that the world is dirtier than it looks, so instead of coming to terms with it, they challenge its powers and laugh at its beard instead of obeying its rules.

For this reason. None of them have a normal life and even visit strange places. Michael Mann Cinema is the cinema of men who see each other either in a car or in a parking lot or with their heads in their pockets and their hands tied in their pockets due to the scorching cold, on the roof of a semi-functional building; Even if, like the famous movie sequence, the meeting is postponed to a coffee shop, the situation is so complicated that the conversation between the two main characters is so far from a normal conversation that it cannot be considered a normal meeting between two ordinary people./p>

The acting environment of these men is not a place that is often expected of a person. They either cut the wire on the roof, open a safe in a room in Namur, or take a motorboat on a night trip to Cuba. Citizenship law has a different meaning for these people; Even if they are police, they believe in the famous saying that "the law was created to be broken." So in such a world, it is no longer strange for a policeman to catch a thief at the last moment and stare away and hate and shed a tear for the death of a man who in another world, by other rules, could have been his best friend.

  • IMDb movie rating: 5.4 out of 10
  • Movie rating on Raton Tomitoz: 32.

In the criminal and police world, hackers who work for the law or harass someone They do not reach and just enjoy their work without any damage to the destination server, white hat and hackers who do wrong and destroy the server server or work with the intention of sabotage, are called black hat.

Strangely enough, Michael Mann has made the worst film of his career in six years, after making a thriller like Enemies of the People; That's when he tries to update the mood of his favorite genre and bring new blood to the veins of crime trailers, using elements borrowed from today's world as well as stars accepted by the new generation of cinemagoers. Perhaps it is this issue, that is, his distance from the chosen men of his works, with that gloomy worldview and the attempt to satisfy the audience of today, which puts Blackhawt in this position and at the bottom of the list.

It has one of the familiar elements of Michael Mann. A man has a mission and he must use his ability to carry out this mission. The appearance of the film and the sometimes shaky camera behavior of Michael Mann have not changed, and the editing and cutting of the scenes, like his other films, is dynamic and relies on creating the atmosphere desired by the filmmaker, but what makes the work somewhere outside the cinema expected Michael Mann puts it, it goes back to the lack of worldview in the main character.

We used to see Michael Mann's cinematic characters as deep people who look at the world with dark glasses; They always had reasons for this negative worldview that can hardly be opposed or rejected. It was within the framework of such a view that the actions of the characters were designed and the cause-and-effect relationships of the drama developed, and naturally the audience believed in such a world and even gave the protagonists the right to cling and insist on maintaining this view.

10. The Keep Tower

  • Product: 1983, UK

Michael Mann always presents a picture of men on a mission and it They have to do it anyway. Sometimes the mission is to catch a robbery, and sometimes to fight the French at a certain point in history to save a tribe, or sometimes everything can be the hand of a huge, international company, or even one or more banks. In such a cinema, even men living in a fantasy world in the last days of World War II have a mission; The mission this time is to save the whole world.

One might ask what would happen if Michael Mann suddenly decided to make one of John Carpenter's favorite stories? To get the answer to this question, they have to watch this movie. The fantasy world of action comes from films like John Carpenter 's Escape from New York, and the atmosphere is something like that. But when we notice Michael Mann behind the camera, we see his special lighting with the constant reliance on blue, and we realize that the men in the story, like Carpenter, do not just think of escaping, but have principles and even try to accomplish the mission. It does not make them forget or violate these principles.

But in general it cannot be denied that the defense turret shows how far Michael Mann's mind is from the fantasy world of such works and his heartbeat with frequencies Such a world is not harmonious. Fortunately, he realized this in his second film, and very quickly, in the next work and even in the TV series he made, he knew the world he wanted and returned to the same atmosphere of cities stuck in a donkey in the dark.>

Michael Mann had prepared a 210-minute version of the film, but the film production studio released a 96-minute mutated version of it that bore no resemblance to Michael Mann's intended result. One of the reasons why the film was underestimated in Michael Mann's career goes back to this issue and the greed of the studio directors, who left nothing of the film and the world of the director. But these fragmented images also show our mastery of creating the space and atmosphere we want.

Another strong point of the film is Michael Mann's ability to combine different genres. The horror atmosphere is set alongside the film's imaginative atmosphere, and elements of the war genre are mixed with images of the presence of Nazi fantasy soldiers. The defensive turret may not have been built on the filmmaker's favorite playground and has nothing to do with his timeless realism, or it may have been Damar Studios since he was a director, but he still has the genius behind the camera that makes us this genius filmmaker. To love; That is, the same Messianic tail of Michael Mann that makes any film an acceptable work.

In addition to all this, pay attention to the sound space created by Michael Rubin, the composer of the work for the film. The harmony between the music and the images and the feeling it creates are great, and of course this is another of Michael Mann's constant abilities to guide the right parts and people behind the scenes of his film.

9. Ali

  • Product: 2001, USA
  • IMDb movie rating: 6. 8 out of 10
  • Movie ratings on Raton Tomitoz: 68.

The film is the pinnacle of realism in Michael Mann's cinema. The filmmaker's camera examines the life story of one of the greatest athletes of all time, away from the usual effects and like an impartial observer. The mezzanine and atmosphere of the work are such that the audience imagines that they are facing a documentary film, and even the shape of the frames is similar to the television images of the 1960s and 1970s. Based on these arrangements, Michael Mann has presented a picture of the life of Mohammad Ali Kelly, the world heavyweight boxing champion, who is still unique.

Sports dramas are a well-established genre in the heart of Hollywood cinema. Relying on the protagonist's training as well as showing his struggles, these films tell the story of men and women who, with all their weaknesses, ultimately win and return across the field with a full hand. In the meantime, there are some slips and some defeats to feel the taste of the final victory more. Of course, the athlete's private life is also an integral part of such dramas and provides the director with an emotional support for the film. But, of course, showing the ups and downs of the life of a person like Mohammad Ali is completely different; Because in his world there is no clear definition of victory; It is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post. Boxing is perhaps the most popular sport for American filmmakers. Because through this individual sport, it is possible to better show human suffering and suffering, and the filmmaker can create a force in his hero that is harder to get up by showing every blow that his hero receives, in order to portray his hero's endurance and fatigue. The audience also better understands the wounded hero and assumes that the wounds on his face are a sign of the suffering he is suffering. Because boxing is not football or basketball that does not leave a mark on the hero's face at the end of the game.

This line can be followed in various works, but when the name of a film based on the life of a man like Mohammad Ali Kelly comes to the fore, The case is fundamentally different. Here we are dealing with someone whose name was once heard by all the people on the planet, who even knew the details of his life and were aware of his political stances, and who knew that he refused to serve in the military until he made outright statements against the war. Vietnam and the bloodshed that ruled that country. In this context, Michael Mann's decision to portray the events of his film realistically seems a logical one, as it deters potential critics from expressing statements such as the film's inconsistency with the life of Mohammad Ali Kelly.

Michael Mann Away from conventional dramas. It is as if the film does not intend to get too close to the events of this athlete's life and keeps its distance from the subject. That's why we seem to be dealing with a documentary from the point of view of an impartial observer. Of course, these images also have a poetic aspect, because the filmmaker has tried to create a spiritual aura around his protagonist; The aura that led the final output to a lyrical show. All of this comes together properly when the filmmaker makes no attempt to dramatize and twist the issues; Fortunately, Michael Mann did a good job.

Will Smith did well in the lead role of the film, Mohad Ali Kelly, and that role led to him being nominated for an Academy Award for Best Actor in a Leading Role. The presence of John Voight is also good, and he also won an Oscar nomination for this film, and of course, he also likes Jimmy Foxx.

8. Enemies of the People (Public Enemies)

BingMag.com All of Michael Mann's films from the worst to the best

  • Actors: Johnny Depp, Marin Cotillard & Christian Bell
  • Product: 2009, USA
  • IMDb movie rating: 7 out of 10
  • Movie rating on Raton Tomitoz: 68.

Enemies of the People is the story of a man named John Delinger who was once on the federal police arrest list The United States or the FBI topped the list, with Jay Edgar Hoover, the police chief, focusing most of his propaganda campaign on catching the thief. The story of this man in the hands of Michael Mann has become a film whose hero seems to have only one mission: to live fast and die fast. For him, nothing in the world is worth wasting his life on, except the love of his life, who is a simple-hearted girl who loves him more than all this hellish world and his appearances.

In the presence of this hero Michael We have no interest in the world and its appearances, and it seems that every action is consciously a crooked mouth to it. Incidentally, laughing at the relationships of this world in the kind of Johnny Depp game and his insidious smile is also evident, and he has well designed these secrets of the character's heart. The chosen man in Enemies of the People is fortunately not Robin Hood, whose left-wing romanticism pervades the film, nor a hero like Bonnie and Clyde in a film by Arthur Penn of the same name that represents the rebellion of a period. He is himself; A man with all the human weaknesses, but very smart who does not crush anything but his lover. He goes to the bank counter to tell the story of a thief who does not know how he spends all that money. The images of the film during the robberies are reminiscent of the filmmaker's career in trouble, and the protagonist's fiery romances, like his fast-paced life, take place in the dark and away from the angry community. The hero knows very well that by living his life, appearing in the sun or clinging to a street light is a suicide, so he even holds his romantic dates in private.

Of course, Michael Mann to get the space right. Around his chosen character, he also depicts the efforts of the other side and creates a character on the side of the law of the story who is looking for the enemies of the nation. This expert police has a high ability to pursue criminals, and the filmmaker has been announcing this since the beginning of his introduction; A great actor like Christine Bell has replaced him to make the role even more important. But what does not elevate him to the level of a police detective playing Al Pacino in The Trouble is his not-so-deep payoff; .
