One HEAT Minute: Episode #156 - Q.V HOUGH (EDITOR OF VAGUE VISAGES)
ONE HEAT MINUTE is the podcast examining Michael Mann’s 1995 crime opus HEAT minute by minute. It’s the 156th minute (2:35:00 - 2:36:00) - host Blake Howard joins Vague Visages’ founding editor and freelance video essayist/writer - Q.V (Quinn) Hough. Blake and Quinn discuss the callbacks and echoes in the concluding threads of Eady’s story, the strain of being minutes away from realising the fantasy, and making a shoutout to Jimmy McElwain and being reminded of Caravaggio’s beautiful and profane in the framing and lighting.
