Public EnemiesDVD - 2009
"Simultaneously an art film and a crime film..."--Los Angeles Times
"This is a very good film, with Depp and Bale performances of brutal clarity."--Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
No one could stop Dillinger and his gang. No jail could hold him. His charm and audacious jailbreaks endeared him to almost everyone, from his girlfriend Billie Frechette to an American public who had no sympathy for the banks that had plunged the country into the Depression. But while the adventures of Dillinger's gang thrilled many, Hoover made Dillinger America's first Public Enemy Number One.

John Dillinger: I was raised on a farm in Moooresville, Indiana. My mama died when I was three, my daddy beat the hell out of me cause he didn't know no better way to raise me. I like baseball, movies, good clothes, fast cars, whiskey, and you... what else you need to know?
(John Dillinger is watching "Manhattan Melodrama" in the theater, and is particularly enthused with Clark Gable as Edward J. 'Blackie' Gallagher) Edward J. 'Blackie' Gallagher: "Die the way you lived -- all of a sudden. That's the way to go. Don't drag it out."
