Watching Public Enemy last friday really drew me into the class.  The film was very intriging and enjoyable.  It was pretty awesome to see that these two poor guys put their mind to becoming rich.  One minute they were walking around the streets and the next they were in high end clubs with expensive clothes, woman, drinks etc.  Some may disagree but I liked that the main character died in the end.  It gave a good ending and a stop to the maddness.  It showed that even though he was wealthy and was able to “beat the system” he couldn’t do it forever.  Theres an end to everything and his lifestyle was put to an end. 

I feel that this film was the start of a whole new genre.  After this film, great hits like “The Godfather” “Scarface” and “Good Fellas” were created and had a very similar concept.  I can see the comparasions between Tom Powers and Michael Corleone from “The Godfather”.  They both started out innocent, having no relation with the mob.  All of a sudden once they get involved they cant be stoped, and theyre the ones killing people now.  They’re the ones that people have to look out for.

    Joanna I really liked the reference you made to modern day “gangster” movies. I also used a similar example in my response because I feel this film set a nice ground floor for many future films in this genre. Good work I enjoy reading your work.

    Sounds like the film about the financial crisis that hit the country not to long ago regarding the home mortgage industry. Good plot though, also glad to see his market came crashing down on his fortune too.
