Review quote

In this book, Steven Rybin takes the reader on a remarkable tour of the world of Michael Mann, a place replete with epic cityscapes, digitally composited dreamscapes, and domestic interiors intermittently inhabited by characters cut off from collective identity and meaning. Interrelating visual design and soundtrack with theme and mood, Rybin's work is the perfect guide to the consummately stylized postmodernist vision of Mann's films. From Rybin's analysis of influences such as Vertov and Kubrick, to his championing of The Insider, to his probing study of Miami Vice as movie, he demonstrates a command of the auteur that makes this book a pleasure to read. -- Susan Linville, Department of English, University of Colorado at Denver
