Michael Mann creates extensive backstories for his protagonist/antagonist that you never see in the movie directly, and its only discussed in the DVD commentaries - take a look at Heat (Pacino discusses the backstory to his character (a cop) that he uses cocaine, but there's no reference to it in the movie). In Collateral, the Tom Cruise character (Vincent) grew up in Gary, Indiana. Check them out.
