Opera Omnia Season One – Episode 5: Heat

s01e05

Welcome to Season 1 Episode 5 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 5 the guys look back at H.E.A.T (1995). This movie remains one of his most commercial and critically regarded movies and boasts the first shared scene of Pacino and De Niro. High octane heists, huge character development and story, this almost 3 hour epic is truly one of the greatest movies of the 90’s.

Movie Rating is 1-10

H.E.A.T

Duncan – 10
Andy – 9

Each episode we will ask the question, is this the best movie in Mann’s back catalogue and as of episode 5 we have our first split with Duncan declaring that H.E.A.T is Mann’s best by 1995 and Andy remaining behind Thief.
