Opera Omnia – Episode 4: The Last of the Mohicans

s01e04

 

Welcome to Season 1 Episode 4 of Opera Omnia Podcast, the podcast that dedicates every season to a incredible director and works through his/her Opera Omnia (or body of work) one movie at a time.

Join your hosts Andy Blockley and Duncan McLeish (formerly of Doing the Nasty Podcast) as they take an in-depth look at some of the best directors in cinema history with Season 1 exclusively looking into the filmography of Michael Mann.

On episode 4 the guys look back at The Last of the Mohicans (1992), Mann’s first movie that yields both commercial and critical success. This is the movie that sets the stage for a decade of acclaimed Mann dominance but will both Andy and Duncan love this love story?

Movie Rating is 1-10

The Last of the Mohicans

Duncan – 7

Andy – 7

Each episode we will ask the question, is this the best movie in Mann’s back catalogue and as of episode 4 we agree that Thief retains its position as the best Michael Mann movie at the time of 1992. We will see how long this holds out.
