Dubbed 'the first conceptual gangster epic', this unmoralistic, detached portrayal of Public Enemy Number One is a fine example of a sensational story, cheaply produced with stock footage, that gets away with artistic murder. Tierney is the glum psychopath, a skilled professional hitting the headlines with his dubious talent. Unemotional and rough at the edges, it's a sobering inventory of a fabulous myth. DMacp.
