Heat

  Sometimes the life of a brave film journalist is not easy – but today, for example. As one struggles to week after week, for the few pearls rauszufiltern in the wasteland of TV program and bring it closer to the inclined readers, and this week we saw almost able to write every day for a TV-tip to. But sorry, Ken Loach, Marx Brothers, Niklaus Schilling, Jean-Pierre Melville, Peter Schamoni and all the others, you all have a chance! For this week my definite favorite gangster film – Heat by Michael Mann

Although man had run up to this point has already made several movies, including success such as The Last of the Mohicans, with Daniel Day-Lewis, but the Most of the spectators was a man primarily as a director and writer of the TV series Miami Vice a term which, in addition to the glamorous lives of two cops mainly pastel Armani jackets and celebrate the wearing of slippers with no socks. Not exactly the kind of merit that one wants an ambitious filmmakers. Then Heat came and with it the clash of the two acting giants Al Pacino and Robert De Niro, who had last been in 1974 in the second part of The Godfather – The Godfather on the air. The common game of two Hollywood giants was considered by many critics as a real sensation of the film, which they only partly right.

Gang leader Neil McCauley (Robert DeNiro) is the brilliant head of a gang (including Val Kilmer, Tom Sizemore, Danny Trejo) in LA, their raids, the police lead again and again deceived. But as the choleric Waingro (Kevin Gage), actually just a replacement triggers – using armored car heist in motion an avalanche of violence, does the harmony of the gang, so far besides the masterful planning their biggest asset, to falter. Furthermore, the fanatical cop Vincent Hannah (Al Pacino) on the heels of stapled and McCauley is about to dig the band. A last major coup to follow, then McCauley wants to make final conclusions and retire, especially since he has unexpectedly fallen in love with the graphic Eady (Amy Brenneman). But the risky bank robbery goes wrong – but can not escape the gangsters, but Hannah and his men come nearer. The gangsters panicked …

Heat stands out not only by his action scenes (including through the really craziest shootout I’ve ever seen), but primarily through the successful characterization of his figures and by a web of subplots, which will fit seamlessly into the film and give it depth and credibility. And coincidentally, at the quietest scenes in the film Sitting, Robert De Niro and Al Pacino in a late night dinner, coffee valuing each other and realize that they are much more similar to each other as their profession – the one cop, the other Gangster – this would suggest. A great movie!
