Manhunter ★★★★

Style over substance. A better film than the Red Dragon remake, despite less overall plot and dialogue. Tom Noonan gives a career defining creep performance as Dolarhyde. Joan Allen rocks (in everything). William Petersen sweats and glowers nicely along with the awesome soundtrack (Coelacanth, In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida, Heartbeat!). I much prefer early, dreamy Mann to his later work.

I love the tiger scene, that to me is what movies are all about.
