black mass 2015Black Mass is an organized crime story based on a 2001 book of the same name about the life of Irish-American mobster James “Whitey” Bulger. Working with the FBI as an informant to protect his own illegal business interests, Bulger eventually would be convicted for numerous crimes, including murder. Depp’s frighteningly realistic portrayal of the infamous Whitey Bulger is particularly noteworthy, though curiously overlooked in 2016 by the The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (Klaus Ming March 2016).
