Collateral: Shot for shot, the best film of the year so far. Michael Mann’s eye is flawless for the details and perspectives that will best tell his story, and for once Tom Cruise disappears into the role, ditching the perma-smile. Jamie Foxx is a real surprise, giving me great hopes for “Ray”, the Ray Charles biopic coming up. Check Collateral out, and following it up with Heat and Ali to get a real feel for the director’s other work.
