  1. Rocco's rating of the film Manhunter

    The 80s-ness of a piece has never felt so oppressive, which is actually the best part of this film. The overheated visuals starkly contrast with the stilted acting and the cheeseball music choices add another element to this already stiflingly stylish brew. The plot is a dud, but I can see why this has attained something nearing cult status.

  2. VincentVendetta's rating of the film Manhunter

    Maybe there is a connection between Michael Mann and Atom Egoyan!

  3. Addy K.'s rating of the film Manhunter

    Maybe Petersen's stilted acting wasn't entirely his fault. In this early 1986 thriller, Michael Mann (known to emulate Bresson) might have been fine-tuning his intellectual but visceral filmmaking style. The obsessed hero would reappear in later Mann films—but he is here superseded by Brian Cox and Tom Noonan, both in better sync with Mann-Spinotti's moody, formalist images which also redeem some very bad 80s music.

  4. Andre's rating of the film Manhunter

    A well told, gripping policier is elevated by Mann's attention to visual and aural texture, which gives this very good (if overdone) crime-horror the feel of an abstract artwork sometimes.

  5. DSPRKY's rating of the film Manhunter

    Feels like Mann hadn't quite hit his stride; the filmmaking is great but the narrative falters. If this film is truly responsible for the spate of awful crime procedurals in the past 20 years, then colour me extra unimpressed. Also, it would seem that Mann's horrible taste in music has been a constant.

  7. William's rating of the film Manhunter

    The scene set to "Strong As I Am" by the Prime Movers. Visual magnificence galore. Why didn't someone tell me Michael Mann was this great?

  8. Samantha Kate's rating of the film Manhunter

    Great acting and interesting cinematography marred by the occasional hokey effect and some terrible fucking music.

  10. FISCHER's rating of the film Manhunter

    Excellente adaptation d'un superbe thriller d'angoisse à lire absolument ! www.cinefiches.com

  11. Josh the Bookseller's rating of the film Manhunter

    Frontloaded with feverish imagery & Brian Cox's amazing Lektor & Farina's mustache, this one loses gravity in the second half, largely due to some musical choices too embarrassing for the time-capsule. Plus the ending's rushed--I can't see how a film so otherwise sleek could be so poorly edited during its big climactic scene. Still, Manhunter's highs match Silence of the Lamb's.

  12. Nick Schwab's rating of the film Manhunter

    Some obtrusive rock songs, but a mesmerizing, moody film. Mann's direction lingers on details, creating an atmosphere and giving all central character's dimension: Petersen subtly plays his character's inner turmoil to create a profound sense of anguish of past demons, while Noonan is a soft-spoken, lonely killer, and Cox is Hannibal sans Hopkins dark humor: more ice cold, less playful, but just as sinister.

  14. Mark O. Stack's rating of the film Manhunter

  15. bryanvmh's rating of the film Manhunter

    William Peterson is a miscast disappointment as a man hunting another man to get it out of his system.

  20. James Mackin's rating of the film Manhunter

    My favourite Hannibal Lecktor film.

  21. Gabriele Mariotti's rating of the film Manhunter

    Not even the fine colors and compositions can't sustain the overall mediocre acting.

  22. Blumes's rating of the film Manhunter

  23. Aaron Dillenbeck's rating of the film Manhunter

    Mann's use of lighting, sound, and color are at the top of their game here. Chilling. Better than all the Lecter movies that followed. Great style!
