Heat | Opposites Attract

by CineFrames

When people talk about Michael Mann’s Heat they often focus on the heist or the about the “cat and mouse” game between Al Pacino and Robert De Niro. In this video essay, CineFrames turns his attention to the opposing main character’s shared drive—the thirst for hunting and thieving that’s systematically breaking down their lives.
