    Ask Fuji....

    Oh yeah, I vaguely remember us discussing that before. Just further proof of how delusional the guy is though. I'll bet he thinks it's a simple gangster movie and it would be easy for him to remake instead of realizing what Cassavetes was going for with the whole artist being continually pulled away from his art by outside forces thing. I've always felt it was a metaphor for Cassavetes and his disdain for Hollywood not always allowing him to do what he wanted to do with his films.

    Re: Ask Fuji....

    Can you rank Michael Mann's movies from least favourite to favourite?

    Yep, but I misread that so this is from fave to least fave...

    Manhunter
    Heat
    The Insider
    The Last of the Mohicans
    Thief
    Miami Vice
    Collateral
    The Keep
    Ali
    Public Enemies

    I do think The Insider is his best film though, I just happen to enjoy the first two more. Haven't seen Blackhat yet so I'm not sure where it would rank.

    Heat is my fav (probably in my top 25 of all time) and I haven't seen Blackhat either. I agree about Public Enemies, I found it to be not bad but definitely below Mann's standards.

    That's the beauty of Michael Mann's work. Even his subpar stuff is better than most.

    Are you a fan of cult classic television program Mystery Science Theater 3000? If so what's your favorite episode and what is your hype level for the new season?

    Re: Ask Fuji....

    I wonder if Heat would be my number one if it had been called GREAT ASS instead?

    Check out The Keep if you can find it man, it's super atmospheric, has an awesome score by Tangerine Dream and it's got Scott Glenn, Ian McKellen, Jurgen Prochnow, Robert Prosky and Gabriel Byrne. Unfortunately it was chopped all to hell by the studio, down to 96 minutes from Mann's original 210 minute cut and he basically disowned the film after its release.

    Yep, I love it. My favourite episode is probably Robot Monster since it's just such an easy movie to riff on, but I honestly like every single one of them. Absolutely cannot wait for the new season, it can't get here soon enough.

    Azaria's reaction to that line always kills me.

    I'll have to find me a copy of The Keep for DAT CAST alone but I'd like the og cut. If Heaven's Gate can get a criterion recut/mastering then so should Michael Goddamn Mann.

    Oh yeah, I'd love to see his original vision even if it may be a chore to sit through at that length. I do believe he said they couldn't really do it because of some trouble with the special effects shots but with modern technology, who knows?
