Ratings & Reviews

  1. SeemsLikeFun's rating of the film Dillinger

    3.5 Most of the parts that aren't uninspired news montages, unnecessary voiceover narration, and overly long shootouts are great (and some of the shootouts have their moments as well).

  2. Log Lady's rating of the film Dillinger

    In the same style spectrum as Bonnie and Clyde, Dillinger has an immense amount of energy with the sum of greatness forming from separate small moments here and there. Looking at purely from a visual and artistic standpoint, instead of how accurate its portrayal of its subject is, this is definitely among the most entertaining gangster films out there.

  3. Aardsy's rating of the film Dillinger

  4. Steve G.'s rating of the film Dillinger

    In this case, the 'G' in G-Man also stands for 'Gangster'.

  5. J.J. 'Jake' Gittes's rating of the film Dillinger

    The movie is throughout, always entertaining, full of gunfights & violences; which I like. What I don't like and what really disturbes me, is the 'black comedy' element in it, which, for me, drags the movie down makes it ridiculous. On top of that it is too close, similar to Bonnie & Clyde. Warren Oates & Ben Johnson doing great.

  6. William's rating of the film Dillinger

    A modern western with energy and poetry to spare. Milius's concern for the impact of violence is always on display; death never fails to register. Beautiful performance by Ben Johnson, see: the scene w/ the young boy at the shoeshine stand. A film full of small resonant moments...Leroy drinking from a flask after dropping his girl off at her front door. Perhaps the best onscreen use of natural wind since Griffith!

  7. Sabrina Crews's rating of the film Dillinger

    Wish the original was on Mubi as well!

  8. dolugen's rating of the film Dillinger

    If it's good, why make Public Enemies? If it's bad, why still make Public Enemies?

  9. Mymosh the Selfbegotten's rating of the film Dillinger

    Crime fighting as genocide. A gangster film dystopia about the extermination of the American bank robber as a species.

  10. Kespo's rating of the film Dillinger

    Too choppy. And Ben Johnson just looks silly with the two guns and cigar.

  11. Howard Orr's rating of the film Dillinger

    Oates and Johnson reteam after The Wild Bunch, and are joined by other excellent character actors; Oates as a wild-eyed romantic, Johnson as a blue-eyed Company Man, both with aspirations to fame (as in Badlands). There are flashes of greatness here (the table abandoned by Dillinger and his moll when he is spotted by his nemesis), but it's sad that Oates all but disappears frkm the film long before his actual demise.

  12. Greg S.'s rating of the film Dillinger

    Coppola called it masterpiece and I guessed he was being generous but I have to agree. Milius applies his brand of anarchism to the gangster myth and transforms it into all out war with Purvis depicted like a killer in slasher movie claiming victim after a victim and seemingly pulling the narrative away from Dillinger. In the opening Dillinger talks into the camera by the end he is reduced to a cardboard cutout.

  13. Robert Karol's rating of the film Dillinger

    Rather impressive how Milius uses a montage of old newsreel footage, old public domain movie footage and still shots of his own actors to suggest parts of Dillinger's rampage. Despite the script's faults, he is a rather impressive director/screenwriter.

  14. Eliecer Gaspar's rating of the film Dillinger

    Balls to the wall gangster film and further proof that Warren Oates was a force in front of a camera.

  15. Tony Pauletto's rating of the film Dillinger

    It's no Bonnie and Clyde and it's no Badlands, but Dillinger certainly belongs in that family. Between this and Public Enemies, the events are hazy and largely inaccurate, but I suppose that's just how it goes with mythology. Warren Oats as John Dillinger is inspired casting.

  16. S Campbell's rating of the film Dillinger

    Better than Public enemies simply due to the fact Warren Oates was born to play Dillinger and the supporting cast in full of ace Chracter actors from that period also
