Aro Recommended Collateral

 

USA 2004, 119 minutes
Dir. Michael Mann
Rating: [M]
Genres: Suspense/Crime, Drama

 

Aroview: A moody night-thriller that cruises the streets of Los Angeles with a taxi-driver (Foxx) whose cab is commandered by a ruthless, grey-suited hitman (Cruise) who proceeds to work his way through a long list of victims.

Benefitting from being dramatically smaller in scale than dir. Mann's recent efforts (ALI, THE INSIDER), this retains his visual prowess and lingering melancholy, while building psychological portraits that feel more convincing and less macho than in previous films. Performances are top-notch with Foxx in particular revealing unusual depth in a star-making role and even the normally super-slick Cruise allowing some cracks in the mask.

Interestingly, this was largely shot on 'High Definition' Digital Video, apparently the first major Hollywood release to use the format.
