Artistic influences on Michael Mann

I came across this genuinely fascinating write up looking at the artistic influences on Michael Mann. It really is eye catching to see some paintings look incredibly similar to certain shots in Mann's films. It is refreshing to find this intelligent level of examination of Mann's visual work. You can't ignore the fact that Mann must infuence his cinematographers, or at least they are employed for their own enthusiasm for Mann's artistic tastes.

Have a look by clicking the title below, great material. There are some great Michael Mann links to explore too at the bottom of the page. Enjoy.
