Michael Mann is undoubtedly one of the biggest names in action and adventure, ranked by 'Entertainment Weekly' as number 8 on their list of the 25 greatest active film directors. His most famous works include 'The Last of the Mohicans', 'Ali', and 'Collateral'. Fun fact: Mann was inspired to be a director after watching Kubrick's 'Dr. Strangelove'. Cheers Stanley!
