The disturbing Johnny Depp ‘Black Mass’

With this film, Virginian director Scott Cooper gives us his best work so far, and Johnny Depp, his most successful interpretation of at least the last twelve years. Not bad for Black Mass . James “Whitey” Bulger was a real gangster that took advantage of its links with senior US policy and federal law enforcement and, so, had to Boston in a fist during the 80 of the last century.
