Col­lat­eral is a study of de­cep­tion and co­in­ci­dence. Jamie Foxx ( left) is rev­e­la­tory in his role as LA cab driver Max, who opens his door to the suave Vin­cent ( Tom Cruise). A strik­ing grey suit and di­rect man­ner sug­gest that Vin­cent is a cor­po­rate type in town on busi­ness – quite the con­trary. Vin­cent is a hit man in­tent on sniff­ing out five key wit­nesses at the be­hest of a fed­er­ally in­dicted drug baron. Max is forced to drive the steely Vin­cent from hit to hit, but as the two men pick and probe each other’s psy­che, a broader im­pres­sion of who they re­ally are emerges. A tech­ni­cally pre­cise, riv­et­ing thriller from di­rec­tor Michael Mann ( Heat, The In­sider).
