One Heat Minute Productions
Summary: ONE HEAT MINUTE: Australian film journalist Blake Howard examines Michael Mann’s 1995 crime opus HEATchronologically, in 60-second increments, in the aptly titled “One HEAT Minute.” Howard and a guest star spend anywhere from 15 minutes to well over an hour, dissecting the selected minute. Each discussion used the minute at hand as a springboard to explore many elements of the film, as well as, Michael Mann’s broader body of work and his impact on cinema. With more than 170 episodes, a line-up including famous filmmakers (Joe Lynch, Dante Spinotti, Phil Hay, Abe Forsythe), writers (Reed Farrel Coleman, Jordan Harper), educators, major critics (Manohla Dargis, Bilge Ebiri, Matt Zoller Seitz, Walter Chaw) and film journalists (Kris Tapley, Chris Evangelista). The finale features the legendary mastermind director, screenwriter and producer behind the film Michael Mann. THE LAST (12 minutes) OF THE MOHICANS is a twelve-episode limited podcast series focusing on the climax of the Michael Mann’s 1992 epic The Last of the Mohicans. The format of the podcast, which slightly differs from ONE HEAT MINUTE, utilises the entire final twelve-minute climax of Mohicans as a portal to explore the themes of the movie, the cross-section of political apparatuses, colonial superpower wrangling, and Mr Mann’s riff on the “great American hero.” The final episode - once again will feature Mr Mann to unpack his intentions with the film in the conception and orchestration of its grand ending.
In this two-part episode I'm joined by the legendary editor at large for Bright Wall Dark Room, Fran Hoepfner, to discuss loving the score before the movie and pondering Daniel Day Lewis' hair routine. To close the episode I talk to the great recovering journalist and filmmaker, Kris Tapley, about growing up in North Carolina and experiencing stunning wilderness, and pitching Mr Mann two more entries in a potential period epic trilogy.

About the episode: Joe Lynch and I, self-professed "Mann-sperts," assemble again to discuss that The Last of the Mohicans is in fact Joe's favourite Michael Mann movie.

With an Academy Award winning score from Randy Edelman and Trevor Jones, iconic performances, stunning cinematography from Dante Spinotti, a relentlessly paced script from Mann and co-writer Christopher Crowe and masterful orchestration from Mann; the film's extended finale - triggered by the delivery of tribal justice until the credits roll - is arguably one of the greatest endings to almost any movie ever. About the movie: The Last of the Mohicans is adapted (and significantly altered from) James Fenimore Cooper novel, set in 1757, Mohicans follows three trappers who are inadvertently drawn into the French and Indian War when they rescue the daughters of British Colonel and their British Captain escort from an ambush.
