One HEAT Minute: Episode #11 - Luke Buckmaster, Stu Coote and Garth Franklin
It's episode eleven of ONE HEAT MINUTE, the podcast examining Michael Mann's 1995 crime opus HEAT, one minute at a time. It takes an all-star crew and the efficiency of Bill Belichick & Tom Brady to unpack the perfect execution of Neil McCauley and his team. Host Blake Howard is joined by the Guardian and The Daily Review's Luke Buckmaster, Geek of Oz's Stu Coote and Dark Horizon's Garth Franklin to talk professionalism, action geography and face massage.
