The best of Michael Mann: Last of the Mohicans

1. The Last of the Mohicans
2. Heat
3. Manhunter
4. Collateral
5. Thief
6. Ali
7. Public Enemies
8. The Insider
The first two were the major tussle here, but Last of the Mohicans is the rarer creature: a historical drama with a pulse. The romance remains the best in recent memory and the ending is majesty itself. Heat is a magnificent-looking beast, as chilly as gun metal, but the marriages are pretentiously written; amongst the women, only Ashley Judd registers. Manhunter has a better Hannibal Lecter than Silence of the Lambs.
