Michael Mann United States, 2015

Ghostman's rating of the film Blackhat

Director's Cut is superior on every level to the theatrical. The plot is clearer, the suspense is stronger, and scenes have changes in shot choice, score, and lines added in or cut out; making it a better picture. Hard to find a Hollywood film that is more modern and sharp. It's tough to decide which Mann movie is his best but this is a strong contender. Rarely has a filmmaker built such a vital body of work as Mann.
