95 ali (mann, 2001)

The biopic is a pretty bankrupt genre and there's little that Michael Mann can do except flex his considerable formal muscles and like, kiss one formal bicep and say to cinephiles in the audience, like me, "Yeah, you like that shit, right?" And I can only nod groggily, a little spindle of drool hangin'. And then he introduces digital video like he just picked up the camera and says, "What's this? Let me (*flexes deliberately*) see if it can do anything for my movie!" Expect more Mann as this list goes on.
