#93 Michael Mann Ranked List
I had actually forgotten about The Cabal. Read Mann's thread and it's Republicans and Democrats as people take sides on the Miami Vice Cabal (which has expanded to all of Mann's digital work.) Up to 1999, Mann was one of my favorite directors, a detail-oriented technician with strong story skills coated in Michael Bay levels of machismo. His recent works have been varying degrees of stupid and all could benefit from severe re-editing. (Ali's focus on the life between the highlights demonstrated why downtime makes for terrible drama.)
Two titles jump out for me to watch:L.A. Takedown
(1989) - Mann's first run at HeatBlackhat
(2015) - the only theatrical feature I haven't seen
I'm probably also going to throw a re-watch of The Keep
(1983) in there because it's Horror and I remember it being really good for about an hour.
