Heat ★★★★½

The coalescence of caustic bluntness and poetry renders a vivid portrait of Los Angeles’s oceanic void and the people who live there, with the scenery coated in the darkening metallic blues, blood, and bullets that tie everything together. Heat proves to be a self-disciplined piece of character study veiled by the savagery of upheavals that effortlessly splits Mann’s texturized stoicism and sentimentalism apart, and calmly it demonstrates what’s actually hidden behind the gnarly display of rampage, which is a desire for true connection that shares the mutual sense of loneliness through a simple gesture of compassion – evidently shown by two grown ass men holding hands.
