Episode 027: Heat
Updated: May 4, 2021
Over the past twenty-four years, Michael Mann's epic crime drama Heat has risen to the status of an American masterpiece, and has influenced a huge range of directors, from Christopher Nolan (the entire opening of The Dark Knight) to Wes Anderson (where Max buys dynamite in the Rushmore). And we love it - hell, you could probably stitch together a complete audio recreation just from Erick and Daniel's quoting it on the podcast… but just because it's a classic doesn't mean this is going to be praise-a-thon! MG dusts it up over casting, length, believability, and whether Pacino's performance might've been made better by adding a little nose candy!
