Heat – 1995
Directed by Michael Mann, this crime thriller was the first to feature Robert De Niro and Al Pacino acting together in a film. De Niro is head of a professional bank robbing ring and Pacino the cop out to bust them. This film is sleek and stylish, the signature mark of director Mann, and filled with troubled characters. You want atmosphere – this is your film.
