All the Ways 'The Dark Knight' Borrowed from 'Heat' Revealed

6 February 2017 3:12 PM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

The Dark Knight director Christopher Nolan has long cited Michael Mann's 1995 crime epic Heat as an inspiration for his best-loved Batman film. 

For casual viewers, the opening heist scene in which The Joker (Heath Ledger) steals from the mob has the most easily recognizable callbacks (and even features Heat star William Fichtner in the key role as the bank employee who takes a stand against the Joker's men). 

Now, an excellently crafted video from Glass Distortion delves into the visual cues The Dark Knight takes from Heat, as well as other films in Mann's catalogue: L.A. TakedownThe Insider, and Collateral.
