1.7 - Collateral
Tom Cruise again?! That's right, another helping of Tom...only this time he's the villain!
Michael Butler and Michael Field breakdown and discuss a film by yet another Michael; Michael Mann's 2004 thriller, Collateral, starring Tom Cruise and Jamie Foxx.
Listen to Butler defend one of his favorite films of all time, against the onslaught of Field's nitpicks! Along the way, listen to the Mikes describe how this film was one of the first major motion pictures filmed in all digital. Learn about how this digital image allowed Mann to make the city of Los Angeles its own character. They also discuss the backstory and prep work that went into building the lead characters of Max and Vincent.
So grab your popcorn and soda, please notice the exits at the front and rear of the auditorium, and settle down for Forgotten Cinema.
