Mann to Mann: The Manly Melodramas of Michael Mann

May 27 — Jun 12, 2022

Kicking off Memorial Day weekend, this mini retrospective celebrates beloved Hollywood auteur Michael Mann’s affinity for emotive, often operatic hetero-male relationships on screen. Each film in the series is centered around a deeply, if uneasily, bonded dude duo. Mann to Mann includes four of the director’s most bracing, stylized movies, made between 1995 and 2006 and featuring such stars as Al Pacino, Robert De Niro, Tom Cruise, Jamie Foxx, Russell Crowe, and Colin Farrell in some of their most intense, fragile-macho roles.
