Public Enemies

Public Enemies lacks heart.  It’s a film with an interesting story to tell and a charismatic leading man, yet it fails to engage.  Bale has little to counter Depp’s performance with, Marion Cottilard was impossible to warm to.  Michael Mann used digital cameras and super close-ups to encourage the viewer to feel involved in the film. But to me the whole thing felt like an anachronism, “Here’s a documentary that cannot exist”
