Am i the only one who thinks,that this movie is one of the best gangster movies ever?
Say i’m the only one.I will blow your brains out…Oh sorry i’m influenced by the movie.
Black mass is a 2015 biographical crime drama-thriller film based on the 2001 book Black Mass: The True Story of an Unholy Alliance Between the FBI and the Irish Mob by Dick Lehr and Gerard O’Neill.The film stars Johnny “fucking” Depp.I mean the real Johnny Depp.Forget the “Johnny Depp” that women used to love because he was sweet in “Edward Scissorhands” and “Charlie and the chocolate factory”.Forget the “Johnny Depp” that kids loved in “Pirates of the Caribbean” because he was funny and in “Alice in wonderland”.This is Johnny “fucking” Depp.The one that women hate because he slapped his wife in “Donnie Brasco”.The one that women hate because he didn’t help his girlfriend in “Public Enemies”.The one that kids don’t know because he is R-Rated.The one that we knew and we loved.He portrays the role of James “Whitey” Bulger ,leader of the Irish-American Winter Hill Gang,who used to control most organized crime within South Boston in 1975.James lives with his wife,Dakota Johnson(Thank God they didn’t let her destroy the movie) and their kid.The film is full with gangster behavior and gangster quotes.That is very obvious especially in the scenes where James talks with his kid.You can see that every advice that he gives is about the “gangster paradise”.Bulger’s supremacy is challenged by the North End Angiulo Brothers, a rival gang, part of the New England Mafia family.But John Connolly,a child friend of James,becomes an FBI agent and helps James to deal with his rivals.The FBI thinks they have a good “rat” and a good informant.But it turns out that James was telling the secrets of his rivals.That way he was able to enjoy the protection from FBI without being an actual “rat”.Benedict on the other hand portrays the role of William “Billy” Bulger the brother of James and the Massachusetts State Senate President.He seems to be a decent politician,who doesn’t want to become “dirty” like his brother but he always helps him.Even when the FBI starts to look for him.The film is incredibly great.Especially, if you like gangster films.It’s full with blood,assassinations,profanity,blackmail etc.If you haven’t seen it… GO WATCH IT NOW.
PS:I heard that Iran is showing Black Mass in theaters, but for some reason all the scenes with Kevin Bacon are missing!!!!!!
