Public Enemy

The pristine state of this restored movie is astonishing. There are a couple of short stretches where the source material is sketchy but they are not too bad. As to the movie itself, it is lurid and violent. The much-noted grapefruit scene in its original context, is potent and disturbing. Many good performances throughout.
