    Public Enemies

    ★★★

    I'm truly angry at myself, this is the second Michael Mann film I didn't enjoy as I wanted to.

    See, as a, mostly, based on true events story, Public Enemies works. On the other hand, as a gangster action drama/thriller, it also does but I felt bored and indifferent too many times.

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    This film is a majestically crafted ride through the life of a broken individual who's completely lost and not even his giant talent can save him.

    I haven't seen too much about what others think about it, but I can see a lot of people not liking this. Basically because it doesn't have a plot driven narrative. It focuses almost purely on character study and also society study.

    As I'm learning guitar myself, I am biased for raising my enjoyment…
