It's the 30th episode of ONE HEAT MINUTE, the podcast examining Michael Mann's 1995 crime opus HEAT minute by minute (29:00-30:00). Host Blake Howard is joined, in his opinion, by the world's greatest living film critic Manohla Dargis. Blake and Manohla discuss the figure of the 'romantic gangster' and how we allow our favourite filmmakers their fantasy, even when it comes to rent.
