I just returned from a screening of PE in LA---WHOA! I attended with my DH and some other JDR members, along with about 400 other people. It was a packed house and even though the flier didn't mention the name of the film, I think that most attending knew it was PE-lol.

It's late and I'll post more tomorrow as I'm sure the other JDR people will as well. Just some first impressions---ALL the acting was excellent. Johnny portrayed Dillinger "just right" according to my DH who isn't as biased as I am wink.gif Loved the paring of him with Cotilliard--she was excellent too and a nice complement to Johnny's Dillinger.


Little Bohemia shootout was great---

Johnny does dance(somewhat-lol) and believe it or not, he also sings!!
The scenery and period authenticity really comes through in the film---I felt transported back to the 30's. Great job by all the extras in the film, too.

CBale was in the film more than I expected, but he was good.

Michael Mann was there and just milling around in the lobby afterwards so my DH told him how much we enjoyed the film.

The film runs about 2 1/2 hours approx.

I thought the ending was very well done--we didn't see closing credits.

Music was very good throughout---30's type mainly.

I'll post more in the morning----

A big thankyou.gif Karen for your help! smile.gif

How could I have forgotten to mention last night-----there's a nice "tasteful" love scene with Dillinger/Billie hot.gif ----so that's something to look forward to as well. wink.gif

I knew a lot about the film going in, so there weren't too many surprises. I'd be interested in hearing from anyone that really didn't know all the story. There were some really great suspenseful moments if you didn't know much about Dillinger.

I'm with you Anne---bring on the trailer!!!

***WARNING: Spoilers ahead****

Watch for Johnny do some great action stuff---now I'm sure he had a stunt double in parts, but it "seems" he did A LOT of the action stuff just based on some close up shots. One part to look for is Dillinger vaulting over the bank counter during one of the bank robberies.........
