    The casting of Johnny Depp as Dillinger and Christian Bale as Purvis is incongruous.
    They are not believable in their roles, and compared to Warren Oates and Ben Johnson, they.are ridiculous.
    Just because they're big stars doesn't mean they're right for the part.

    I'm a huge fan of Michael Mann, but his commitment to digital film-making has begun to alienate me.
    The digital media on which PUBLIC ENEMIES is shot undermines the effectiveness of the film and its ability to communicate.
    Mann needs to go back to shooting on 35mm film and to give more thought to casting.
