Dillinger Is Dead

Dillinger Is Dead ★★★½

The exciting, dangerous, provocative life of the young John Dillinger is over. Dillinger is dead and all that remains is a middle aged man who hates his job and lives with a disinterested wife. Is the longing for the past and the draw to younger women clues to our hero's mental state? Could the hot rod red revolver be compensation for his libido? The phallic nature of of firearms strongly supports this. Dillinger is Dead is a clever portrait of a man suffering from a mid-life crisis that treats the viewer to an enormity of themes, but also fascinating visuals.
