Every student film I have ever seen is better than this movie.
Mann is truly a 21st century filmmaker. A flawed, but important experiment in early digital filmmaking techniques. Mann approaches digital media as a standalone format and not a replacement for film. He fully embraces the then technical limitations of the time and uses it to his advantage. While working really well in Miami Vice, a period piece like this seems like a weird choice. I respect the effort though and I'm always down to see an exploration of medium that tries to build something new.
