#62. The Public Enemy (1931)
Why It's In The Book: "William Wellman’s melodramatic chronicle… of gangster Tom Powers (James Cagney) is the greatest of the early 1930s gangster films. The genre’s sometimes sympathetic portrayal of ruthless criminals… prompted the institution of the production Code Administration to supervise the dubious moral value in Hollywood films… Cagney remains powerful and energetic as Powers, dominating the screen in every scene and setting the pattern for all gangster films to come, including The Godfather Series. Wellman directs the film with a strong visual sense, designing memorable scenes…" -1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die
Squish - 8/10
"[The Public Enemy] is ripe with 'the look'. Rolls Royces driven by men in pinstripe suits and fedoras, gritty dialogue, Bostonian accents... it's a real smash-up tale of the rise and danger of the 20s prohibition-busting gangsters."
Sunny D - 8/10
"It's not as though The Public Enemy is a keeper in terms of pure artistry. But as an unsparing, unsentimental document of the dawn of American gangsterism, however fictionalized, it's well worth remembering."
Kim Wilson - 7/10
"This a good film. It is one of Cagney’s best performances and it is historically relevant. In addition, it had a significant impact on the development of the gangster film genre."
Movie Guy Steve - 7/10
"It’s a classic for several reasons, but it’s also pretty standard."
Nicolas Krizan - 7/10
"Brutal, menacing, edgy James Cagney pursuing his own misinterpretation of the elusive american dream."
Adolytsi - 6/10
"This isn’t a very well put together film, and it unfortunately shows in many ways."
Siochembio - 6/10
"Every time Cagney is on screen, the film feels alive. Every time he’s not, it feels slower than molasses."
TSorensen - 6/10
"We are getting a lot of gangster clichés, but not as many as in Little Cesar and Scarface. One of the persistent ones is the exaggerated use of flowers at gangster funerals. I believe the newspaper article said that the flower bill at Nails Nathans funeral was 75.000$. That is funny."
