Encounter #64: Strong As I Am

From what some consider Mann's best film, Manhunter, and what (I think) most people consider the best adaptation of a Thomas Harris book. This is one of the best scenes, but the final shoot out to that Iron Butterfly song "IN-A-GADDA-DA-VIDA" is also amazing. There used to be a youtube clip of that but it's gone. As long as this one is up, enjoy. And know that Tom Noonan is perfect for Dollarhyde. (As much as I dig him, Ralph Fiennes shoots too big too often in his version of this story.) More words on this picture, and Mann in general, shortly, in other webspaces. --RWK
