As some of the merit of the film boasts a few fatal rounds at the end, confined to the mystery of the world, one ponders why must the innocent suffer while those who own true guilt go free. Wrack your brain as you must, but a more realistic rendition of the story of John Dillinger (played by the infamous Johnnie Depp) and Public Enemies, a film about how he really lived his life, this outlaw genre peaks as one of the most endearing portrayals of the life of the man. One of the initial close up shots of the shooting death of Pretty Boy Floyd while of course a given per se ~ It is such a gangster of principal that a heart has to love. Even a fantasial criminal has some socialist qualities worth admiring.

The kingdom of the sodom of the day, and if history repeats itself with crime running rampant due to the birth of prohibition, the ability of Depp to portray an authentic Dillinger just as his diverse ability to make the character of Tonto or any other character seem as real as the day they walked the earth continues to astound. And clearly, Dillinger like Depp had a born ability to maintain a level of professional ability keen to every situation ~ Dillinger, quick to note the presence of the G-Men and a small town while lacking any real genetic intelligence, he repeatedly manages to escape and outsmart them all. But that the girlfriend, her destiny now changed and her life transformed to that of captive as opposed to free woman, it seemed the one main G-Man who in real life committed suicide via a ship of guilt for unfairly imprisoning the innocent woman lost to Dillinger again. A 1930 style movie set and a frame of the statement made by his girl regarding her loyalty to him, she wanted only to protect him.

A fanfare of family togetherness moulded the lives of people during the Great Depression. And people of the era of the film truly really only wanted to just survive the drought of poverty. At the same the panorama of authentic background scenery accentuated by the appropriate clothing of the times, a day of gangsters who wore three-piece tailored suits as opposed to stocking caps or hoods. A burning mystery to this day, the reason for the changing fashion of criminals to the vogue of the present era, a runway question still waiting for answer. The future might hold one. And even though as every prior Dillinger film before Depp also holds the star senselessly gunned down. However, the producers give us the feeling that Dillinger won. At the end of the film we feel more of that hero sense and despite the criminal act of the part he at least gave money away to the worthy.

Dillinger loved the theater almost as much as life or crime. The one show room who knew every single detail of his past, the cinema as an analogy of a woman, she. And as the actor admired as another character that woman on the silver screen strapped to a concrete floor, her metal constraints as one drop of blood fell from there, she trembled. And the woman who had just betrayed him, she also trembled. The film, as if to say, no Manhattan melodrama please.
