Having an iconic Hollywood filmmaker for a dad isn’t always a cool thing. The dad in question: Michael Mann, the guy who brought us such notable gangster tales as “Public Enemies,” produced the gritty, testosterone-infused “Heat” and has more than a dozen blockbusters to his name. Granted, Michael Mann may not have the cache of Francis Ford Coppola, but he is — in the words of Woody Allen — “in a place that counts.”

Sadly, the same cannot be said for Mann’s daughter Ami Canaan Mann, whose talent-rating is nowhere near that of Coppola’s daughter Sofia, and whose struggle to get where she wants to be is painfully apparent in her film “Texas Killing Fields.”

In a time of both misinformation and too much information, quality journalism is more crucial than ever.
