Heat (1995)

Robert De Niro and Al Pacino have coffee together. Tensions run high. Val Kilmer shoots somebody's face off with a machine gun. Maybe somebody's daughter is in peril. A bank is robbed. Helicopters? This movie is as long as a typical multi-season television drama. When I saw it in the theaters there were six intermissions and I wrote an opera in my head.*

Like My Dinner with AndrĂ© but both more violent and more boring.

* This is actually the first movie I ever thought of walking out of in the middle, I was so bored.
