Blackhat (2015)

Tangible Intangibles in Blackhat


Early in Michael Mann’s cyber thriller, Blackhat, Special Agent Barrett (played sturdily as ever by Viola Davis) threatens an official with an overly-dramatic line about making the “intangible” into the “tangible.” The point isn’t the dialogue itself, and in a film filled with over-caffeinated visual poetry stuffed with comments about the contemporary dichotomization of above ground and through-the-net politics this moment surely doesn’t standout. 813 more words
