Whitey Bulger is dead

Posted in Uncategorized by Anna Maria Polidori on October 30, 2018

I was looking on Twitter when I read the news of the death of James “Whitey” Bulger. James Bulger was killed this Tuesday in a prison located in West Virginia.

It is still unknown, who, why committed this crime although in inmate is under investigation told the Daily Mail; the spokewoman is speaking of “Investigations” regarding this crime.

Jimmy Bulger was 89 years old and was freshly arrived in this prison yesterday for later being found “unresponsive” today and although the staff od the prison tried all the best for resuscitating the gangster he was later declared dead.

This one is not the first case in this prison. The main problem; the lack of staff.

Bulger, a life sentece for eleven murders, lived a criminal existence. Writing to some students three years ago, he told them: “I wasted my life,” “I Took the wrong road; adding” a criminal, doesn’t have a legacy for the posterity. Don’t waste your time, as I — we are society’s lower, best forgotten.”
He also added: “My life was wasted and spent foolishly, brought shame and suffering on my parents and siblings and will end soon.”

Let’s see who James Whitey Bulger was. Born in Boston on 1929 son of a family of Irish immigrants, a career in the crime, South Boston became the realm of Jimmy “Whitey” Bulger, a criminal ferocious if compared with the Italian Mafiosi of North Boston. Not a single person lost the existence in North Boston while Bulger didn’t hesitate in killing, spreading various kind of drugs and sufferance. Sometimes also innocent men lost their existences because in the wrong place, in the wrong moment, helping the wrong person for charitable spirit.

The story has seen a brother of Bulger, William, senator, and later President of the State Senate.

At the same time, this one maybe the most corruptive scandal of the entire USA ’til now, the FBI and Bulger became strickly connected; Bulger, although boss of an important gang, became an informant of the FBI thanks to Connolly a common family-friend. Connolly would have wanted to become an important piece in the FBI and thanks to Bulger arrested important esponents of the Italian mafia.

This connection continued.

Bulger and other members of his gang have been protected by the FBI ’till the end; when the wind changed, when the Boston Globe published in an article written by Kevin Cullen that Bulger was an informant of the FBI, it was time to leaving Boston forever.

Bulger at that time shared his existences with two women: one was Catherine Greig. She followed him, the second choice, but the one who stayed close to him ’til the end. The other one was a lady with four children with which Bulger shared most of his existence, but this lady didn’t want to leave his family because the destiny of his man changed by the events. The family was her priority.

Bulger spent the rest of his existence till at the moment of the capture in peace and solitude. He choose as a location Santa Monica, California. He didn’t go out a lot, people remember and maybe he wasn’t a great chatter, but at the same time he wasn’t a bad neighbor.
With the time he made good friendship with people close to him, and everyone started to appreciate this elderly couple; someone remarked also that they didn’t understand why a younger woman like Catherine Greig was, spent time with this man, much more old than her.

The capture of Osama bin Laden meant the end of this new existence, lived in peace, for Bulger, because he became the first in the top ten list of the most wanted criminals of the FBI.

An ex Miss Iceland afforded to Santa Monica, starting to make friendship with this couple.
She enjoyed to help Catherine Greig while she fed stray cats and once returned to Iceland, looking at the CNN she recognized her Santa Monica’s friends, but the names were not the ones she remembered.

She called the FBI and Bulger was soon arrested with Greig. Catherine was happy because of the arrival of police-men because she didn’t know anymore what to invent with neighbors and friends.
Bulger was active in the neighborhood and now his new friends didn’t understand why he started to live secluded by the rest of the world.

From 2011 ’till now Bulger spent all his time in prison. Voracious reader, he received and loved to answer all letters sent to him from the most disparate parts and for the most diversified reasons.

Black Mass was the latest movie released in which Johnny Depp portrayed James Bulger.
In the past there was The Departed, and many more movies and books were inspired by Bulger’s crimes activity.

Bostonians admit: that era is gone forever.

The first of tweeting about the death of the mobster was Michele McPhee.

“I want the truth”

Posted in Uncategorized by Anna Maria Polidori on October 13, 2018

A new strong interview with GQ of a wounded warrior in search of peace and truth

After the interview realized with Rolling Stone a couple of months ago, a magazine Johnny Depp trusts a lot because he has great connections in the editorial staff, a new one appeared to the horizon recently: the one of GQ British Edition written by Jonathan Heaf.

Reading that interview by Rolling Stone I thought that Depp was experiencing a bad moment. I am not scared when I see people suffering. I am more scared when I see that people are so superficials that they don’t feel any sentiment at all. They scare me much more because I know that they can’t understand life, they won’t mind, they will not be there for anyone.

Johnny Depp is not superficial and what happened these years have been devastating. His private life, his public life lived a tornado.

A compassionate man, someone who maybe uses a lot of colored words, but that at the end is the kindest person you can meet along your way, always lovable and gentle, respected, became someone else for the media. People, viewers of his movies were perplexed and they didn’t know anymore what to think of him.

Johnny Depp is in France now, in that estate in Provence that, let’s hope, he won’t never sell, because he presented him a lot of happiness; he is here for explaining.

For searching peace, for his reputation and for his children.

It’s a complicated situation this one.

Oh, how I would want to write about Johnny’s next movie, his latest photo shoot, because these facts are distants from the life of an artist. You don’t think at attorneys, trials, you don’t think at anything negative when you think at an artist.

Oh, yes: their life can be pretty complicated, but a fan sees the surface and it is more than sufficient for going on happily and thinking that their existence is wonderful.

His ex relationship maybe didn’t bring in his existence a great moment of creativity. We still don’t know why, considering his profound love for that woman. At some point, Johnny adds: “It’s a mourning for someone you thought was…” The love of his life? asks the reporter. He replies that yes, something.

Johnny Depp wanted to put things in perspective says, speaking about his interview with Rolling Stone.

It is clear that what Johnny Depp is searching is the truth. He repeats to the reporter that “That’s really my biggest obsession in the world. It’s just the fucking truth.”

He searches the truth in his memories; and when he was still married with Heard, started to write a book of memories.

He adds that he was happy to interact with people like Marlon Brando, Patti Smith, Ginsberg, Dylan.

Days before the arrival of the reporter, Tim Burton spent with Johnny Depp some days. The two are united by a lot of collaborations: from Edward Scissorhands to Alice in Wonderland. All these movies are real masterpieces in their genre.

Success for Johnny arrived with Pirates we know that, and his life changed. Abruptly, but in better after all, because if in the past he was considered an actor for a niche of people thanks to his productions, now he could give a strong impulse thanks to his power at the movie industry.

Johnny Depp tells that anyway Hollywood has never loved him a lot and they weren’t sure that Jack Sparrow would have worked properly: but he won also that battle.

People loved Jack Sparrow and people loved and love Johnny Depp.

Tattoos: there are new updates regarding the latest tattoo Johnny made about the ex wife: at first, when in love with her it was slim, then became scum, now scam. He told to the reporter that we will discover why soon.

Johnny lives these years as a “Perverse situation that was inflicted on me” calling Hollywood “This vile….circus.”

Not only: he turned to be, after that he played the role of the winner, Quasimodo, the beast.

Again the interview remarks the terrible relationship existed between Johnny Depp and his mother.

Another interesting interview of a great man, recovering from, maybe, the most devastating experience of his life.

Stay strong, Johnny!

Johnny Depp, his tears, loneliness and financial problems

Posted in Johnny Depp by Anna Maria Polidori on June 24, 2018

Johnny Depp, his tears, loneliness and financial problems

In an interview with Rolling Stone Johnny opens his doors and its intimacy with the world, including use of drugs and alcohol

I posted this piece before but I could not re-edit it. Unfortunately WordPress is one of the pages that this old PC with not too many software installed can opens.

I am so sorry I mismatched the name of the reporter.

I am sorry with the interested people and my readers. I wrote this piece in a complicated day, plenty of interruptions.

Unfortunately when I post on WordPress I can’t see visualized the page wonderfully well. So if there were also ortographical errors, please try to understand.

Here the piece about Johnny Depp and Rolling Stone.

 

 

Recently Johnny Depp met a reporter, Stephen Rodrick by Rolling Stone.
“This could be your Pulitzer” he told him once arrived to his mansion in London, one of his favorite places.
The journalist spent 72 hours with the actor, finding Johnny not at his best and this is worrying, although, he adds, his eyes are still stunning and the ones we all remember very well. Johnny Depp has always been one of the best voices of Rolling Stone. I have the piece written by him when Thompson passed away and his numerous interviews at the magazine.
When Johnny wants to tell something important to someone via press he picks up Rolling Stone.

What caused this terrible and so hard existential moment for Johnny?
Why not yet over but where possible more profound?
Why did he fall and why is it so difficult for an actor like him to return at the normality?
What’s wrong in this process of healing?

Each of us will find some answers reading this long interview published by Rolling Stone.
Johnny didn’t call the magazine for telling them what it is going on in his existence at the moment but for speaking about his financial situation.

Johnny considers his life “Plenty of betrayal.”

Depp as we know sued his management group and some relatives, being sued by his past management group as well.

Johnny Depp started to experience problems on the set.
His agent and lawyer abandoned him.

Stephen Rodrick tells that Johnny’s day starts after dark ending at the first lights of dawn. The reporter has never met Johnny Depp during the day only during the night.

I didn’t like a lot the phrase in the interview: “If his current life isn’t a perfect copy of Elvis Presley’s last days, it is a decent facsimile.”
It’s terrible to make comparisons. People are different, their life-stories are different. It’s impossible to serialized or stereotyped existences.

Like also comparing Johnny Depp at Dorian Gray the character created by Oscar Wilde not maybe the happiest choice. That fictional character was horrible. Johnny is a good man I guess with some problems to sort out at the moment but substantially innocuous.

In the article is reconstructed Johnny’s life and a long portion will  involve Betty Sue, the mother.

Great friendship with Tim Burton his collaboration with him created many, wonderful poetics movies.

Johnny Depp lost an important friend River Phoenix when he was the owner of the Viper Room. After that, for respect, every Halloween’s Eve, the Viper Room was closed for remembering that horrible fact.

Johnny considers his financial situation as reported by Rolling Stone in this way: ” I didn’t see the movie, and I didn’t understand the script, but here’s what it is.

The economical conditions explained in a detailed reconstruction.
In all this intricate story also the marriage and divorce with Heard.

Johnny Depp started to feel depressed.

He tells to Rolling Stone: “I kept trying to figure out what I’d done to deserve this. I’d tried being kind to everyone, helping everyone, being truthful to everyone. The truth is most important to me. And all this still happened.”

Johnny Depp wants to return to filming when some of these intricate (it’s so complicated, you will read) financial problems will be resolved. A french book he wants to adapt and direct.

When the reporter left Johnny Depp’s mansion, Johnny thanked him for listening. The reporter admits that the house where Johnny Depp lives is like a “gilded prison.”

Johnny presents good movies, original ones, and what I love of his movie is this lightness.
He treats sometimes pretty heavy thematic with a great light touch and once you finish to watch one of his movie you are delighted and absolutely satisfied because it remains the beauty of what you have seen, plenty of poetic touch.

Dear Johnny, stay strong and be well soon!

Johnny Depp too slim?

Posted in Uncategorized by Anna Maria Polidori on June 4, 2018

FB, blogs and my interruptions

I am so sorry for not keeping updated Johnny’s blog as in the past but I am experiencing heavy problems with FB.

It’s impossible to visit the page from home and when I go somewhere it’s just a story of: let me see what it is going on on FB.

I miss that old times so badly! I love this actor and I love to follow him.

I recently noticed that Johnny Depp lost some weight, maybe too much and as many other fans the question is: why?

Sure the recent years haven’t been a nice walk at all for Johnny Depp considering the amount of stress accumulated. What I appreciate the most of this new Johnny? He is serene. Being slim presents a different serenity because the person is more mentally active and more light of all the possible mental weights.
His eyes are firms, happy.

Our hero needs some relaxation. Let’s prepare also a good and virtual birthday party to our favorite actor. this June 9

The message of Murder on the Orient Express

Posted in Johnny Depp by Anna Maria Polidori on December 24, 2017

Why is it so important Murder on the Orient Express and the message contained in this book and in the movie where Johnny Depp is part of?

The thematic of murder is not just seen through the perspective of a crime committed in this case against a baby in the past, but dynamically.

It is analyzed the possibility of a revenge after a certain amount of time and the legitimization of a murder when the crime committed  too inhuman and horrible for being forgiven or forgotten.

Suggestive book I am a real estimators of all works by Agatha Christie for the intensity of her stories and plots.

Christie loves to portraying claustrophobic situations where people are blocked or invited somewhere for maybe find death.

These stories presents more suspense and psychological knowledge of characters.

 

Enjoy the movie!

Three Men and an Evening!

Posted in movies, Pirates 5 Dead men tell no tales by Anna Maria Polidori on November 20, 2017

31 years after Platoon Johnny Depp, Charlie Sheen and Kevin Dillon reunited this past summer

Last July a touching moment for Johnny Depp, Charlie Sheen and Kevin Dillon and reason for spending some time together.
Johnny Depp was very happy and cheerful and “in smoking mood”, relaxed and with the stunning look of the old times. So sexy! looking at this pic and with his terrific, seductive eyes we all know very well.
Sheen appeared surprised by the flash of the pic, Dillon very smiling!

The reunion because all these actors played a role in Platoon one of the most iconic movies realized about Vietnam’s war.
Platoon was directed by Oliver Stone.

Johnny Depp was Lerner the translator, Sheen Chris Taylor, Dillon soldier Bunny.

Great careers, I am a fan of Johnny Depp and Charlie Sheen that I know in particular for his role of Charlie Harper in Two Men and Half.

In a post time ago Sheen said he wants to be remembered for his work more than for anything else.
So…Let’s talk a bit of Two Men and Half for defining this actor. Charlie Sheen will pass at the History because of this very important and followed American TV series.

Charlie Sheen played in that TV series the main character Charlie Harper with Jon Cryer in the role of his brother Alan and Angus T.Jones in the role of Alan’s son, Jake. A successful TV series, loved and appreciated by Americans, the main story is this one.

These two men – and half, Jake, Alan’s son still toddler when the series started, – if at first sight appear completely different are ironically substantially equal and complementary in their psychological block unable to let them construct a good existence with a woman because of the big problematic developed thanks to the lack of attention, love and devotion of their mom Evelyn, their mom, more busy to working and spending her free time with men and women than not to growing up two psychologically healthy children!

Alan, the littlest one tried to do that: married two times he divorced two times. He left at the first wife his old house, deciding to ask for some help at his oldest and luckiest brother Charlie.

Charlie is rich, thanks to the creation of jingles and children’s songs. He loves to spend his spare time drinking too much, surrounded by a lot of girls. Charlie is very opened, captivating and so to him conquering a girl or a woman is like to drink a glass of water.
He is loved by Rose, his neighbor, a so romantic girl, but Charlie thinks she is like a cartoon although maybe secretly he loves her, or maybe just he doesn’t want to lose her. He has a waitress, Berta, a woman able to scare a dictator. Charlie hates with all himself his mom Evelyn, for the reasons I said before: this lady neglected to give love to her children with different results. And he openly tells that to her.
Alan tries all his best for being nice with his mom.
Alan, is a chiropractic, and maybe it is a life’s metaphor: trying to fix back’s problems, Alan would want also to try to fixing himself and the deviations his life has taken; he doesn’t drink, he doesn’t smoke, he read a lot, he speaks with researched words most of the time, but without that success Charlie has known and he feels constantly the comparison with him.
Charlie once grown-up became a successful man but an addicted. An addicted about alcohol, an addicted about girls, women, because of this lack of love during his childhood age. He searches for constant compensations.
Jake, Alan’s son is a junk-food addicted.

Charlie is an intelligent man. He hates hypocrisy and he loves to speak openly of every kind of topic and he is a great uncle for Jake.
When Charlie can’t sort out big problems the TV series developed the character of a psychologist where he goes for trying to resolve his most profound conflicts.

Although the tv serie can’t be suggested to children, it’s for an adult public, trust me when I tell you I find both these brothers adorable and tender, for different reasons.

Alan because is unlucky. He is a sort of modern Donald Duck not with three nephews, but with a son. He doesn’t have a lot of money so his biggest nightmare is money and how he can save them for himself and of course for Jake’s future.

Fortunately, Charlie is not Scrooge McDuck or Uncle Scrooge.
He is very generous with his brother.

Charlie considers his brother a complete failure and so stingy, but Alan is fighting in a daily base for money. Charlie, in this sense is much more lucky because his work gives him the possibility of a best existence.
Alan is considered a failure in a society where money are the meter taken in consideration for every person and a social symbol of success.

Charlie is successful, easy-going, always smiling, happy, very generous with everyone although his life when interested by a serious relationship is a failure.
Most of the time these failures are connected, when Charlie doesn’t work for destroying his relationship using just his bad habits by the strong connections existing in his family able to absorb him and Alan in an abyss of confusion and straining moments.

In particular women of his family and his life like Evelyn, Berta, don’t act for his personal private success. Yes, because if Charlie is plenty of success with his work his private life is chaotic and messy.

At the same time there’s no doubt that the Harper’s family in its big dysfunctionality is solid with a great touch of ingenuity and “return of childhood” in these two brothers sometimes.
There is sadness as well because no one is happy in the Harpers although no one is seriously unhappy either, but at the same time there is this spiral of problems unresolved that no one knows how they can be resolved because Berta, Alan, Charlie, Evelyn are united by the same destiny: a weird life and a weird life brings lacerations that sometimes can’t be healed completely.

Adorable tv serie, I try of not lose any episode because according to my point of view Two Men and Half is just apparently light.
The character of Charlie Sheen, Charlie Harper sometimes seems to be the alter-ago of the actor.

I just hope that Johnny Depp, Charlie Sheen, Jon Cryer one day will realize a movie all together for Disney. They would be great! Charlie Sheen is nice, Jon Cryer is extremely funny and Johnny is a real icon and Disney’s “brand.”

Davy Jones to Montone for the Umbria Film Festival

Posted in Johnny Depp by Anna Maria Polidori on July 9, 2017

It is wonderful everytime to attend the Umbria Film Festival.

Yesterday night although it was dramatically warm no exception. Watching the movies of the Umbria Film Festival is a beautiful experience.
I attended various editions in the past in part as member of the press for Il Corriere and sometimes just as spectator.
Yesterday night the key of the town presented to Bill Nighy.
Love Actually, Pirates 2 and 3. I watched the picture of this actor on Google and I thought: “Who was in Love Actually?” The American President? I saw the movie two times, I adore Hugh Grant, but…I couldn’t locate his face. And what kind of role played in Pirates?
I googled the net: bloody hell, Davy Jones? Oh God, we are close to the Olympus I thought.

The funny rock-star of Love Actually? Bingo! So hilarious! I remember a line. When they asked him why it is beauty to become famous he said: “Because they present you every drug for free.” I remember his eccentricities. A character I loved a lot in that movie.

I decided to bring with me my mom.
I don’t know but I think that it is great to let her know which is in part my world, the one I dedicate some time of my existence, since I met online some people connected with Johnny Depp and other actors as well and who these people and actors are.

Mom really enjoyed to follow me, curious to seeing the star and other people ad well. I also added her: “Don’t worry mom we will find some fresh weather at Montone.”

It was the opposite: terribly warm, when we arrived we ate an ice-cream that was our dinner, but in terms of calories, eating an ice-cream means to eat a dish of pasta, so it’s more than OK and plus it’s refreshing.

We found a place in the last line and waited for the arrival of the actor.

I noticed a colleague from Gubbio with which I talked at long. He works for RAI TRE and it is great to seeing him and some other faces I know, like most of the ladies I know because they are part of the committee of Books of Dogs.

In the while we met the responsible of the press for the Umbria Film Festival. She asked us which were the press and TV stations we worked for, thanking us because she saw some articles published in our newsmagazine these past days.

I asked if it was possible to take a picture with the actor asking him some questions as well. “You know I have a blog dedicated to Johnny Depp, it would be nice a pic with Davy Jones.”
Her answer was that only the editors of newsmagazines and magazines could stay close to the actor for asking some questions. For the rest he was a bit armored she told us. Theoretically I am the editor of my blog, but I understand that a magazine and newsmagazine is something different and I thought at my poor career as reporter. “Anna Maria no negative thoughts, this time be less shy, less sad and more courageous! It’s your world this one.”

Well it was a sort of Fantozzian’s story at first. I saw immediately the entrance of Mr Nighy and I decided to start to taking some pictures and I marched in his direction secure of myself. For once. When I was close to the actor ready with my Amazon Fire to take pictures, the disappearance of the actor. I felt a great nervous! But is it possible? At my arrival people evaporate.

I haven’t considered that he could be sat somewhere in the tables close to the big screen, I thought that they decided to keep him behind one of the opened doors of the palace, for the big entrance.

But I was wrong.

He was peacefully sat in one of the tables close to the big screen of the Square Fortebraccio, waiting again for being called for the prize.

He was so funny, but British humor is the best one in the world. He started to saying us that with this key during the night he would have started to asking to the citizens of Montone for some food and drink.

Later he also revealed us that his first flame was from Umbria. I wouldn’t be surprised. Colin Firth married a lady from Umbertide.
But no: it wasn’t true. He told us this one was the first time for him in Umbria and he really enjoyed , he told us to staying here.
Very tall, thin, the first idea is that he is an intellectual guy, and I guess a very funny man.

I took a video I just hope to post at some point one of these next weeks, and pictures that I must download yet.

Enjoy in the time this tale!
