Zen Pulp Michael Mann

Film critic and filmmaker Matt Zoller Seitz (The New York Times, The House Next Door) made a terrific video essay series on the works of Michael Mann. They can be viewed over at the Museum of the Moving Image website. He was gracious enough to credit me in it (research). Even though it’s all his hard work. The series is done in five parts, focusing on various aspects of Mann’s work, ranging from existentialism, reflections, women and the pre-Miranda police procedural.  View Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4 and Part 5.

I love the planimetric framing used in the shot above.
