(2004) Jamie Foxx plays Max, an LA cab driver who’s offered a cool 600 dollars by Vincent (Tom Cruise) simply to drive him around while he runs a few errands. On a stop Vincent asks Max to park in an alleyway while he visits an apartment block. But when a dead body crash lands on his cab, Max realises that Vincent is a contract killer, and he’s now trapped as his driver. Michael Mann’s film is more than a straightforward thriller, as the pair disclose more and more to each other, and Vincent’s past and Max’s hopes for the future are revealed.
