Heat is in the cop-movie pantheon with Akira Kurosawa's High and Low, and that's as right as the genre gets.
Above all, the dialogue is complex enough to allow the characters to say what they're thinking: They are eloquent, insightful, fanciful, poetic when necessary. They're not trapped with cliches.
A love-hate poem to L.A., and when Mann takes in the streets, the freeways and LAX, he doesn't give us shiny Lethal Weapon-style travelogues. He shows us an L.A. that's grim, bare, a bit smoggy and ruled by street smarts. [15 Dec 1995]
