ABOUT THE NEON DREAMS SERIES
Neon Dreams is a Toronto, ON based film series bringing you the best in delightfully surreal neo-noir cinema from the ’70s, ’80s, and beyond. PAST (more…)
This Halloween season, Neon Dreams invites you to enter a Mann’s world and experience the pastel glow, art-deco design, and Miami Beach sunsets of Manhunter—the definitive psychological horror of the ’80s. Under the uncompromising vision of Michael Mann, this neo-noir nightmare is heralded by many as one of the most stylish films ever made. However, unlike many films to which that moniker is applied, the style here compliments the substance rather than suffocates it.
Former FBI profiler Will Graham (Neon Dreams alumni William L. Petersen) is called back to duty to pursue a deranged serial murderer named “the Tooth Fairy” (Tom Noonan), while seeking the help of recently incarcerated Hannibal Lecktor (Brian Cox—delivering a performance arguably more nuanced than Anthony Hopkins’ portrayal). The results are a masterclass of tone and suspense in a film that hasn’t lost an ounce of its ability to elicit nail-biting terror. Seeing this neon-drenched masterpiece on the big screen might as well be the law for every cinephile. – BRENDAN ROSS
