No one can play evil or an angel for 24 hours. A note from Black Mass


The movie – Black Mass dragged me back to my bachelor, Criminology. Crime is something defined by law or norms. You might don’t see an action as a crime, but since it is written by law, then it became violation, a crime. So if you want to hit your enemy, do it without no one is around. When James ‘Whitey’ Bulger found his son got trouble because he was beating his schoolmate , this is what he said, ‘It’s not about what you do, but it’s about how you do it, where you do it, when, to whom, and who you are with. Do you know what I mean?’ And his son replied, ‘I am going to beat him when there is no one around.’

James Whitey Bulger is a loveable person to his family and the community of South Boston. He is dearest brother to Billy, a powerful leader in Massachusetts Senate and a gentle son towards his mom. He is also a loving father and husband. James is an angel to his surround.

Do people really change?

Whitey Bulger is becoming a full time evil after he lost his mother, son and his wife. He depressed. At the same time, he has more power, thanks to FBI agent John Connolly who convinces Whitey to help the agency fight the Italian mob. The alliances between the Whitey and Connolly became out of control. Whitey became one of the most dangerous gangsters in U.S history. Organized Crime story is always fascinating one for me. How they sustained their work and how their alliances with the law enforcement, and sometimes the way to destroy these organized crime is by bring all them to the conflict of territorial power. Let them kill each other!

What really interesting to me from this movie is the way Benedict Cumberbatch and Jhonny Depp are so different from their previous image. Although Bulger’s family originally came from Ireland, but both of them are born and grew up in Boston, so their accent has change. You will find Benedict Cumberbatch lost his sexy audible voice with British accent. He talked with his deepest voice and hardly recognized his usual voice with my eyes close in this movie. While Jhonny Depp is no longer the Captain Sparrow. His make-up and acting are AWESOME! I don’t like his contact lens and the way that he stares on people, it was scary!

The movie based on true story of Whitey Bulger, brother of a state senator and most infamous violent criminal in US history in 1970’s. This is my climax movie of 2015, the best of the year!
