Michael Mann in ‘Public’ eye

Johnny Depp film premieres in L.A.

Though the crowd screamed like ’60s-era Beatles fans at the arrival of star Johnny Depp, it was unmistakably Michael Mann’s film when “Public Enemies” preemed Tuesday at the Village as part of the L.A. Film Festival.

“The film is a symbiosis of so many things Michael Mann has done in his career,” said producer Kevin Misher. “Crime in America; a classic Chicago story; and a sense of style that brings you into a specific time and place.”

After-party was at the Hammer Museum, where U co-topper Marc Shmuger praised Mann for “still making movies that have impact and style.”

Marketing topper Adam Fogelson said the pic stands out in the marketplace, since it has “meat on the bone. There’s some depth to the characters. After two months of cotton candy, audiences are ready for some protein.”
