Johnny Depp can do no wrong. Plain and simple. Yes, I liked "Secret Window," now let's drop it. In his latest film, directed by Michael Mann (of "Heat" fame), Depp plays John Dillinger, a renowned crook and J. Edgar Hoover's worst nightmare. He is seduced by Billie Frechette (a gorgeous Marion Cotillard) one night at a bar and is quick to spark a relationship with her. As the film progresses we learn that Dillinger is Piblic Enemy #1, and the Chicago Police have an entire sector after him. After successfully murdering mass-murderer "Prettyboy" Floyd, Melvin Purvis (Christian Bale, with a slightly annoying accent) is assigned to lead the group. He follows Dillinger's every move and will stop at nothing to get him behind bars. When he finally does, John is quick to escape. This leads to a climactic scene that is so gritty and real it dares you not to look away. The rest of the film is no different. Shot with a natural, fly-on-the-wall look, the film is intimate and incredibly raw. And annoying as his accent may be, Bale really delivers. Consider it his redemption for "Terminator Salvation." He says more with his face than anyone else does with words. Empty glances convey his loneliness and recoiling about his job, causing an interesting theme for the film. Through the police's search for a criminal, have they descended into the same behavior? Who's right and who's wrong? This question is heightened by a dynamite performance from Depp (but really, what's new?) He turns Dillinger into a confident, charismatic character and causes the audience to end up rooting for him over the Chicago police. Only Johnny Depp can do that. But good as the film may be, it isn't "Heat." The film provides no backstory for John Dillinger, so we never really know why he's robbing banks. He's in jail as the opening credits roll, but why? Nevertheless, the film is incredibly entertaining and leaps and bounds better than most of the other blockbusters being released this summer. If you're trying to decide between this and "Transformers," by ALL means, see this. It's just as long but feels like nothing compared to the grueling length of that thing. But if you're a tween or teen deciding between this and "Transformers," you might have to pick the awful one. The film is unsettling and very violent, but I was fine. It all depends on your tolerance level.
