Public Enemies

Crime-film maestro Michael Mann goes back to the ’30s for his latest film, the characteristically hypnotic and moody Public Enemies. Johnny Depp does amazing things as John Dillinger, the infamous bank robber who should’ve opted for a nice summer drive rather than a movie on a hot night in 1934. Mann continues to be a master of stylistic crime drama. Public Enemies stands alongside his Heat, Collateral and Manhunter in the genre. Depp, even though he is 15 years older than Dillinger was when he died, is right at home in the role. Anybody who has seen Dillinger’s smirk in old photos will know that Depp has nailed the man’s look and attitude. And when Dillinger is seen displaying his menacing smile as he watches Clark Gable in Manhattan Melodrama just moments before being gunned down, you can see Depp reveling in the moment.
