Michael Mann's Heat

SERIES
See It Big! Action

April 19–July 14

Presented in collaboration with Reverse Shot

In a sense, all movies are "action" movies; cinema is movement and light, after all. Since nearly the very beginning, spectacle and stunt work have been essential parts of the form. There is nothing quite like watching physical feats, pulse-pounding drama, and epic confrontations on a large screen alongside other astonished moviegoers. See It Big! Action offers up some favorites of the genre. The series opens with cinematic swashbucklers and continues with movies from around the world featuring white-knuckle chase sequences and thrilling stuntwork. It highlights work from some of the form's greatest practitioners, including John Woo, Michael Mann, Steven Spielberg, Akira Kurosawa, Kathryn Bigelow, Jackie Chan, and much more.

See It Big! is the Museum’s signature big-screen series, co-programmed by Curator of Film Eric Hynes and Reverse Shot editors Jeff Reichert and Michael Koresky.
