About the Author

Steven Rybin is assistant professor of film at Georgia Gwinnett College. He is the author of The Cinema of Michael Mann (2007) and Terrence Malick and the Thought of Film (2011).


His critics have labeled him a superficial stylist; however, Michael Mann and his films are celebrated in Steven Rybin's energetic analysis of the filmmaker in Michael Mann: Crime Auteur. This book continues and expands upon what Rybin initially began with his 2007 book The Cinema of Michael Mann. . . .Rybin's approach to Mann's films is systematic and precise. . . .Furthermore, his enthusiastic approach to the films and television shows, and the care and detail he provides, adds to this optimisim. Rybin's refreshing approach to Mann places the director in the likeness of classic film director titans of past and present. * Film Matters *
Steven Rybin has written an incisive, indispensable account of Michael Mann's cinema of ideas and visuals in what promises to be the definitive study of this major film and television auteur for years to come. -- Steven Sanders, emeritus professor, department of philosophy, Bridgewater State University
