Michael Mann / US, 1986 / 120 min.
Before The Silence of the Lambs, Hannibal ‘The Cannibal’ Lecter already made his appearance in this film based on Thomas Harris’ novel Red Dragon. Rather than relying on blood and gore, Michael Mann harnesses the oppressive camera work and acting to unnerve his audience.
Film auteur Michael Mann (1943) directed his first feature film The Jericho Mile thirty years ago. High time to offer a comprehensive retrospective of the eleven films he made for the cinema and his two TV films. Plus of course, episodes of TV series directed, written or produced by Mann, including the influential Miami Vice.
