One HEAT Minute: Episode #77 - Eloise Ross
ONE HEAT MINUTE is the podcast examining Michael Mann's 1995 crime epic HEAT minute by minute. It's the 77th minute (1:16:00-1:17:00) - host Blake Howard joins program coordinator and co-curator at the Melbourne Cinémathèque and co-host of the Cultural Capital Podcast, Eloise Ross. Blake and Eloise discuss the strange Elliott Goldenthal score choice to emphasise Sizemore's "lug" of a character agonising over this crucial decision; Eloise's yearning for uncharacteristic silence in this sequence; the fatalism of noir films; and the chicken wire dead ends connecting CHINATOWN, VERTIGO, L.A CONFIDENTIAL and HEAT.
