"I like baseball...

...movies,good clothes, fast cars... and you. What else do you need to know?" I saw this tonight..

Tied to historical fact surrounding the bank jobs of John Dillinger and crew during the Great Depression Michael Mann as always made a very stylish film. Johnny Depp and Christian Bale play similar roles to De Niro and Pacino's characters in Heat which I think is Mann's masterpiece. This lacked the quick fire dialogue Heat is memorable for but retained the same suspense and atmosphere. Enjoy Depp's portrayal of a lovable rogue whose jail breaks made him a folk hero seeing as the public eye had no sympathy for the banks he robbed who had plunged them into the Depression in the first place. Keep a keen eye out for Claire from Lost and Herc from the Wire too.
