GIVE IT UP is the high point in Bonnie Raitt's early career. On it she brings together her R&B, folk, and straight blues influences with a mellow soft rock approach that would become synonymous with the California FM sound, yet none of these elements dominate--Raitt mixes the sounds perfectly. The result is an accessible, sensual music that never relies on cliché for effect, a sound that laid the foundation for her future commercial success...the flawless ease of her performances is what, ultimately, makes GIVE IT UP authentic, endlessly listenable, and one of the era's classic blues-rock albums.

SONG USED:"HEARTBEAT"

MANHUNTER
UNIVERSAL PICTURES 1985

Producer-Dino De Laurentiis
Director - Michael Mann
Screenplay - Michael Mann
Source Material (from novel) - Thomas Harris
Executive Producer - Bernie Williams
Camera Operator - Michael Mann
Executive Producer - Richard Roth
Producer - Michael Mann
Director of Photography - Dante Spinotti
Editor - Dov Hoenig
Associate Producer - Gusmano Cesaretti

Manhunter is a 1986 thriller based on Thomas Harris's novel Red Dragon. Written and directed by Michael Mann, it features Brian Cox as the popular character Hannibal Lecter (although the character's name is spelled "Lecktor" in this film) and stars William Petersen, Joan Allen, Kim Greist, Dennis Farina and Tom Noonan. The cinematographer was Dante Spinotti who also served as the director of photography on Red Dragon.

Salon.com has said that Mann's original is the best of the Lecter series.

The film has now become a cult classic.

The film has a 94% rating of "Fresh" on Rotten Tomatoes.

Manhunter was listed at #41 on Film 4's 50 Films To See Before You Die.

 



SONG USED:"HEARTBEAT"

"NOBODY LIVES FOREVER"
MIAMI VICE 1985
NBC TELEVISION
MICHAEL MANN PRODUCTIONS

"Nobody Lives Forever" is a superb episode of "Miami Vice" from director Jim Johnston. Beginning with action accompanied by George Thorogood's "Bad To The Bone", the opening sequence climaxes with the ketchup strewn destruction of a lunch truck. Good, messy fun!
There's romance in the air for Sonny Crockett who has fallen for the undeniable charms of beautiful, up-market Brenda, played by Kim ("Manhunter") Greist. As a result of this relationship, Crockett's work starts to suffer, posing serious questions about his future as an undercover cop.

There's a terrific soundtrack to this episode, including Red 7's "Heartbeat". This seems to be a Mann favourite - he used this for the end titles of the aforementioned "Manhunter". Another memorable track is Glenn Frey's "New Love".
Don Johnson's performance is pitch perfect and the episode is both realistic and moving.

9 out of 10.
