Michael Mann / US, DE, 2006 / 134 min.
Colin Farrell and Jamie Foxx pick up where Don Johnson and Philip Michael Thomas left off as the fast-living guys Sonny Crockett and Ricardo Tubbs, undercover agents in Florida. Michael Mann did not want to come up with a clone of the TV series that made his name in the 1980s. Instead, he went for a cold-blooded, hyper-stylised and rawly realistic thriller.
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.
