Mini Review - Black Mass

Black Mass (out Oct 8) chronicles the rise of organized crime boss James "Whitey" Bulger in Boston during the 1970s and 1980s. It's a truth is stranger than fiction tale - evidenced by Whitey's relationship with the FBI. A few parts feel over simplified but Johnny Depp's great lead performance (you almost forget it's Depp) makes this a compelling film. Grade: B+.
