Manhunter ★★½

I really, really want to like this film. I adore THIEF, a rather similar film from director Michael Mann about a troubled individual silent male protagonist with quite a few problems upstairs. The film is deliciously stylish, and who doesn't love a good murder mystery involving Hannibal Lector? (Or rather, "Lecktor," in this film.) But still, everyone in the film seems more bored or tired than anything else, and it's hard for me to not feel the same. Again, I WANT to like this, and I've tried several times. Maybe some day...
