ONE HEAT MINUTE is the podcast examining Michael Mann's 1995 L.A crime saga HEAT minute by minute. It's the series finale and the second part of the examination of the 166th minute (2:45:00 - 2:46:00) - and host Blake Howard joins a guest that needs no introduction. The final crescendo of the incredibly extensive, yet limited, series is none other than the legendary mastermind director, screenwriter and producer of HEAT, Michael Mann. Blake and Mr Mann discuss airports as romantic alien landscapes, crafting performances with his legendary players, the occurrence of the moment depicted that unlocked the epic and the feeling that while he was filming that there was nowhere else on planet earth that he and his cast would have preferred to be.
