N.Y. Daily News columnist Lloyd Grove has been hearing about Miami Vice director Michael Mann‘s “maddening post-production process — screening the film at least once a day, then obsessively adding and subtracting dialogue, pauses and even frames, then redoing all the changes.” Maddening? That’s what all perfectionists do when they create something they want to be “just so.” (That’s how I write when I’m doing a big piece.) Grove is also hearing this process is “a desperate effort to fix the unfixable.” That’s not what I’ve heard at all from a very bright guy who’s seen the film. We’ll all see soon enough. “All of us agree this is a brilliant movie from the first frame to the last — a great Michael Mann movie,” Universal co-chief Marc Shmuger told Grove in the same piece.
