Michael Mann United States, 2015

HKFanatic's rating of the film Blackhat

Michael Mann's latest faces an uphill battle: not only is the film dealing with an inherently un-cinematic subject matter in computer hacking, but it features one of the most seemingly convoluted espionage plots since "Quantum of Solace." Thankfully, Mann appears absolutely engaged by the material, pushing the boundaries of digital photography closer to the abstract than any other studio filmmaker would dare.
