JA from MNPP here again. When I participated in the "We Can't Wait" countdown with Nat & Co. the other week, we collective countdowners got taken to task for (amongst many many things) leaving off some love for the next effort by the director Michael Mann, Public Enemies.
For my part, Enemies did not make my top 20 list, and looking at the films that did make it I stand by that, but I still kind of wonder why I'm not more excited by this film. I love Bale (yes, even after the bitch-out heard round the world), I love Depp (usually), and I'm one of those crazy people that thought Marion Cotillard deserved that damn Oscar... then there's Billy Crudup, Channing Tatum (mmmm), Lili Taylor, David Wenham (mmmm)... the list goes on and on.
All those actors, plus Michael Mann in the director's chair... well see, Mann always makes movies that sneak up on me. So I think that's what this is. And now, seeing some new pictures from the flick via MSN, well... I am feeling a tingle of anticipation, I am.
There are more at the link so check them out.
Looking at the poster, I do wonder at the decision to have Depp's crotch be the focal point of all the text. Then again... perhaps that is genius. Mad genius!
