Michael Mann / US, 1999 / 157 min.
Michael Mann’s story of Jeffrey Wigand, a whistleblower in the tobacco industry, is a sharp indictment of that industry and American society. At the same time it’s a brilliantly constructed, overpowering story about the urgency of truth-seeking. With Russell Crowe and Al Pacino in top form.
