One HEAT Minute: Episode #8 - Luke Buckmaster
It's episode eight of the podcast analyses Michael Mann's 1995 crime opus HEAT, one minute at a time: ONE HEAT MINUTE. Host Blake Howard is joined for a second time by premiere film critic for the Guardian Australia, The Daily Review and author of "Miller and Max: George Miller and the making of a film legend" the perennially awesome Luke Buckmaster. In this minute we discuss Michael Mann's painstaking action geography, and his Hitchcockian "business-like" assembly of character chess pieces.
