In your essay, you MUST include the following: 1. Do some research on Michael Mann as an auteur: although he emerged as a feature filmmaker somewhat later than New Hollywood directors like Scorsese, he was certainly inspired by such New Hollywood works as Kubrick\’s \”Dr. Strangelove\” to pursue filmmaking within the industry as a career. Although Mann has a clear penchant for genre cinema (in particular, the crime genre), his films modernize the conventions of certain classical Hollywood traditions in a similar manner as the works of such New Hollywood directors as Scorsese.
2. When think about \”Collateral\” in relation to \”Taxi Driver,\” it\’s important to note that \”Collateral\” is much more of a genre work than Scorsese\’s film. It was also shot in L.A., a city that has some importance to Michael Mann\’s cinema (in particular, films like \”Heat\”). However, certain characteristics of the American city, such as the ethnic tensions & ethnic underclass/connection to crime, etc., are clearly present in both films. And Mann\’s \”Heat\” would give you a better sense of how he often shoots L.A., and you can compare that to Scorsese\’s treatment of New York.
3. Try to include the ethnic component in the essay because it is also worth thinking about in \”Collateral,\” as is the focus on money (& the need for money) that is characteristic of the crime film and film noir, genres that Mann frequently draws upon.
4. Follow the MLA style for proper documentation format and create a thoughtful title for your essay. Try to demonstrate your thorough understanding of world cinema.
5. When you structure each session of your essay, try your best to make them echo to each other. And most importantly, focus more on the textual analysis in relate to the topic.
6. You MUST refer to the following two readings and incorporate them with your own argument: – AlSayyad, Nezzar. “The City through Different Eyes: The Modernity of the Sophisticate and the Misfit.” Cinematic Urbanism: A History of the Modern from the Reel to Real. New York: Routledge, 2006. File – Taubin, Amy. “`Taxi Driver.’” Taxi Driver. London: British Film Institute, 2000.
