Director Michael Mann is one of the most celebrated and groundbreaking filmmakers of all time.

Mann first gained attention for his work on the crime film ‘Thief‘ and the Hannibal Lecktor movie ‘Manhunter,’ before creating the iconic TV series ‘Miami Vice.’ He would eventually direct the big screen adaption of his popular 80’s TV series, and helm Oscar nominated movies like ‘The Last of the Mohicans,’ ‘The Insider,’ ‘Ali‘ and ‘Collateral.’

But the filmmaker is probably best known for directing the 1995 classic ‘Heat,’ which finally cast Robert De Niro opposite Al Pacino for the first time ever on screen!

Michael Mann’s new movie, ‘Ferrari,’ which stars Adam Driver as the iconic title character opens in theaters on December 25th. In honor of the new film, Moviefone is counting down every movie of Michael Mann’s impressive career, including his latest.
