With all the attention rightly paid to the ultra-stylish Hannibal crime series currently airing in primetime, it's helpful to return to the purity of the current with tonight's screening of the film that started it all: Michael Mann's Manhunter (1986). For some strange reason, Maynard Keenan from the band Tool is talking about it with Modern School of Film founder Robert Milazzo, but they both seem pretty sincerely interested in the whole thing, so even if you were going to come see The Exorcist and got mad because they canceled that movie (also originally planned for a talk with Keenan), just keep telling yourself: It's only a movie! An awesome movie about various kinds of maniacs with that soundtrack that's just so bonkers amazing and Joan Allen is so fucking luminous that you'll just want to shit. Oh, and there's a tiger!
