The Bit Players hop in the cab in with Jamie Foxx and Tom Cruise as they discuss Michael Mann's 2004 film Collateral on this week's podcast. They talk about how Mann's style is once again front and center in his film, which is especially impressive given the close proximity the viewer is afforded to such mega-stars as Cruise and Foxx. The film, like his 1995 film Heat before it, explores two characters on the opposite ends of morality who might have more in common than they originally thought, and the guys discuss the ways in which Mann chooses to reflect that. Some of those choices work (Foxx's Max meticulous with his cab as Vincent is with a pistol) while some...just don't (Audioslave and coyotes).
