"'Heat'. Michael Mann film. Every time I watch it, it gets better and better.
"The detail in it is flawless … if you try and unravel the story there's not one detail that doesn't hang together, and it 's the most perfect cat-and-mouse police thriller I've ever seen.
"It features two of the greatest performances by two of America's most electrifying actors -- DeNiro and Pacino -- and alongside all of that, as a genre thriller, as a piece of photography, as a kind of cat-and-mouse cop thriller, it has this incredible philosophical weight; it's an examination of the fatal flaw in masculinity, which is summed up in Pacino's line: 'All I am is what I'm going after.'"
