Here is a page detailing the history of Michael Mann. Other obvious sites to explore are Wikipedia. Superior pics states that it was Stanley Kubrick's film Dr. Strangelove that inspired Mann into film. However, the perhaps more reliable Taschen book, Michael Mann, states it was G.W. Pabsts 1925 masterpiece Joyless Street that left him awestruck.
I do highly recommend the Taschen book, Michael Mann, available at reduced prices on Amazon.
