Michael Mann / US, 2004 / 120 min.
Evocative neo-noir about a kind-hearted taxi driver in Los Angeles (Jamie Foxx) and contract killer Vincent (Tom Cruise) who instructs him to search out a few people on a hit list. The two slowly build a rapport in this stylish suspense thriller with its uncanny look.
