Public Enemies by Michael Mann

Here's a New York Times time suck on how people spend their day. Thinking and Relaxing. That's the ticket.

Watched Public Enemies last night. Okay movie. The story never really came together for me and none of the characters really developed clearly. Johnny Depp did a decent job as super bank robber, but Christian Bale disappointed with the same serious face throughout the movie.

I had an "ah-ha" moment when Michael Mann's name came up at the credits (yeah, I didn't do the due diligence...). Some of the bank robbery scenes and fire fights felt familiar. Overall, however, Public Enemies is a far far cry from the exhilarating Heat. Not really recommended.
