« L.A. Times' list of top 25 movies set in L.A. -- what I think it omitted | Main | "Is Survivor broken beyond repair?" »

February 27, 2013



Personally, I like Scott, but love Mann's films. With Mann, the emphasis on quality and a intimate relationship with the project speaks volumes of whom Mann is a film maker. Scott doesn't write his films and churns them out every 1-2 years. Both have a strong sense of aesthetics and panache and often have interchanging casts with one another. What material of Scott is truly of his genesis ? Mann's got Thief, The Keep, L.A. Takedown/ Heat, and Collateral albeit uncredited scripting duties.
