Miami Vice

More than one review I read about Michael Mann's latest feature film, Miami Vice, used the word sexy. I thought, how sexy can it be? Let me count the ways:
1. the sound of a Ferrari engine
2. shower scenes
3. Jamie Foxx
4. Colin Farrell salsa dancing .... yes, really dancing *sigh*
5. the strong silent look of a brooding man (many of them)

The story is no nonsense and moves right along, there is a lot of violence. The look of the film is dark, gritty and intense. Just about every shot is a study in angle, composition and lighting. I like this new look for a contemporary Crockett and Tubbs.
