Since his debut as a feature length filmmaker in the late seventies, Michael Mann has been one of the most distinctive and fascinating directors in American cinema. His greatest films have endured long after many more critical and popular favorites by lesser directors have long faded away, and even his missteps have proven much more interesting than perhaps first imagined. In an attempt to try and kick Moon in the Gutter off auto-pilot, I am hosting a new director's poll that I'd like everyone to participate in based on Mann's feature length films. His newest, Public Enemies, is one of the most anticipated films of the year and the timing seemed right. So, vote for your favorites and we'll tally up the results in the next week or so.
