 about brickthrewglass

Brick threw glass is a Movie review website. Brick threw glass is a metaphor I made up for film, the BRICK is the anamorphic shot blocking, and GLASS is the camera lens , the word THREW is a play on words, should have been thru but, I used the words THREW. This website reviews and critics films in a different way,using humor it also tries to interject some of my technical knowledge of how films are created and made into the process.


image: titlte: no spoiler reviews
OK “We don’t do spoilers”; it’s my policy to be very vague about the story lines of the films I review here. I have always hated reading movie reviews that tell to much about a film. Entering a theater already having preconceived notions about the plot and / or the outcome of the film in the past have ruined the viewing experience for me,so this is why  these reviews are written this way .

Public Enemies movie review 2009 Public Enemies :Johnny Depp

 Public Enemies movie review 2009
Public Enemies is based on the true story of FBI agent Melvin Purvis's ( Christian Bale) attempt to stop criminals John Dillinger (Johnny Depp), Baby Face Nelson, and Pretty Boy Floyd. Depression-era bank robber John Dillinger and his gang are brazenly robbing banks and a new agency called the FBI is created to stop him. Hollywood’s powers that be are looking for a reason to give Johnny Depp an Oscar; he has made some box office titans, but none of them anything that justifies top honors. Public Enemies is the vehicle to get Depp the best actor statue, he’s nailed the character and is unflinching as John Dillinger. After years as the world’s favorite pirate he has won a place in the hearts of movie goers and if as I predict does get a best actor nod, will be the crowd’s favorite to win and dually so. The story for this movie is well written the cast stellar and the whole feel is authentic.

Michael Mann directing is great and he is too should get nominated for awards as the year ends. Public Enemies gets its feel form shooting at original locations including Little Bohemia Lodge, the actual location of a 1934 gun fight between Dillinger and the FBI and banks that were actually robbed by Dillinger. Academy Award® winner Marion Cotillard is fantastic and really does a convincing portrayal of Dillinger’s girlfriend Billie Frechette who seems to be herself bend on self destruction.

The only thing I can come up with for critique is I really don’t like the new Shaky Cam effect that this movie has in parts of it, it’s hard to watch on a 30 foot high screen. All in all this is one of the year’s best films and is really  worth the price of admission, and should be as I stated early nominated for a hand full of awards at years end.
