And the Oscar Goes To… Not a Clue

Public Enemies

Let me start by saying I am a big Johnny Depp fan. I loved him in “Chocolat” and “Finding Neverland”, even the “Pirates of the Caribbean” trilogy. He’s one of those actors who can read a phone book and I will watch. But his latest film “Public Enemies” is, sadly, a bore, particularly when he is not on the screen. The basic story is 1930s USA, John Dillinger (Johnny Depp) is a bank robber. Melvin Purvis (Christian Bale) is a hot shot G-man on his trail and Billie Frechette (Marion Cotillard) is the poor hat-check girl Dillinger falls in love with.
