An Interview with Michael Mann1

(p.47) 4 Manhunter
Michael Mann Cinema And Television

This chapter presents an interview with Michael Mann, in which he talks about his crime thriller Manhunter. Oscillating between fantasy and the whodunit, everything in Manhunter seems out of order, out of sequence, spaced out, out of time, colorless in the extreme. In this interview, Mann explains the juxtaposition of reality with nightmare in his films; Manhunter protagonist Will Graham, a killer played by William Petersen; why the film's title was changed from Red Dragon to Manhunter; and the differences between novel and film.

Keywords:   interview, Michael Mann, crime, Manhunter, nightmare, film, William Petersen, Red Dragon, novel
