Manhunter

Manhunter ★★★★★

The scenes of the interiors in this are the best depictions of the Atlanta suburbs I can think of. Cross reference the murder house with youtu.be/qogWEU2Khc8?t=773

Just full of small touches that love and have stuck with me since I've watched it for the first time. Think I prefer this over Heat still just because nothing strikes me as weak as the Natalie Portman subplot whereas I actually enjoy the turtle metaphor that bookends the film and the scene in the grocery store is a highlight of the film (reminds me a lot of when my dad 'came out' to me about being institutionalized during 80s satanic panic). I'm probably tired of talking about/hearing about Michael Mann on the whole but I never tire of this film.
