One HEAT Minute: Episode #147 - MATT ZOLLER SEITZ (TV + FILM CRITIC VULTURE + NEW YORK MAGAZINE; EDITOR AT LARGE ROGEREBERT.COM; AND CO AUTHOR OF THE SOPRANO SESSIONS)
ONE HEAT MINUTE is the podcast examining Michael Mann's 1995 L.A crime opus HEAT minute by minute. It's the 147th minute (2:26:00 -2:27:00) - host Blake Howard joins Co-author of THE SOPRANOS SESSIONS, TV and film critic for Vulture and Editor-at-Large of RogerEbert.com, Matt Zoller Seitz. Blake and Matt discuss that Robert De Niro is absolutely at his best in silent close-ups when he's thinking; Matt's theory that whoever gets to say the title of the movie is who the movie is about; and Michael Mann's fascination with people who cannot escape the traps of their own conditioning.
