This is the true story of Jeffrey Wigand (Russell Crowe), a man who signed a confidentiality agreement before getting fired from a big tobacco company. Hotshot *60 minutes* producer Bergman (Al Pacino) asks Wigand to decipher some technical documents, and soon realizes there's a bigger story hiding inside Wigand.
On top of that, Wigand is recruited to testity in Mississippi for a case that ... read more

Russell Crowe is the insider trying to expose the truth of the mega-business of tabacco & Al Pacino is the outsider who finds himself involunteerily pitted against the corporate politicks of the media which both men were counting on to help in the cause. Watching both actors on screen is an example of the kind of movie chemistry that can result from the combination of solid acting abilitie... read more

A Complete Review of Michael Mann's work (11 movies items)

" Cast : Al Pacino, Russell Crowe, Christopher Plummer, Philip Baker Hall, Gina Gershon, Michael Gambon What was it about? A research chemist comes under personal and professional attack when he decides to appear in a 60 Minutes exposé on Big Tobacco. My two cents: This movie is easily one of the best movies delivered by Mann. Nowadays, it seems to be rather forgotten but when it was released, it was a big critical success and it definitely deserved all the praise it received. Indeed, to s"

"Es una película de investigación con una propuesta diferente al resto. En su dirección, en determinados momentos se posiciona la cámara en los hombros de un personaje, para así dar su punto de vista y ver los detalles más importantes de una escena. Su fotografía utiliza en los exteriores tonos azulados naturales y en los interiores amarillos provenientes de luces artificiales. Ambos colores se mueven de sus escenarios normales y se enfrentan en los cortes. Es una forma de demostrar los co"

" Notes: First of all, what the hell happened to Michael Mann?!? Seriously, he used to be one of the most interesting directors at work but, after 'Collateral', his following movies have been increasingly disappointing and this trend reached an all-time low with 'Blackhat' which was one of the biggest commercial and critical flops released in 2015. Anyway, even though I have started to lose some faith in the guy, I still really like his work (at least, his older work) and this one is probably on"
