Thumbs up from the Globe

The third trailer of Black Mass appeared days ago. Another interesting trailer for a promising movie with real characters, in this Johnny’s movie.

Whitey Bulger, John Connolly, Will Bulger are real people like all the other characters you will see in this movie. Everyone still alive.

This one the first, real reconstruction of the story of the fight of the irish mob and the FBI it seems, VS. the italian mob. The desire from the FBI of defeating the italian mafia Cosa Nostra created by Jerry Angiulo desired a lot.

For this reason, the old friend of childhood of Bulger, John Connolly asked, it seems to Whitey Bulger to become an informant of the FBI. The legal strategy of Bulger denies Bulger has been an informant of the FBI.

While the italian mafia located in North End was defeated, and it was a pretty “calm” criminal association, strange and impossible to believe at first but true, in comparison to the one created by Whitey Bulger, Bulger became the most important, powerful and terrible mobster of Boston. It meant in this case murders, sufferance, drug.

Bulger has always had a lot of protections because as admitted the FBI during the trial against the members of the italian bosses of the italian mafia Angiulo in the 90s, he was an informants of the FBI like also Flemmi, an old friend of the FBI. Flemmi Rifleman was an informant of the local agency of Boston from 1965.

The Boston Globe in an article written by Kevin Cullen in 1988 launched this news: Bulger as an informant of the FBI. Reactions? The local agency of the FBI would have waited other nine years before to confirming that the FBI had as informants in their local agency Flemmi and Bulger. They confirmed it during the trial against the family Angiulo. At first, in 1988, it followed a lot of embarrassment from the FBI.

At the same time in 1995 the mobster Whitey Bulger was constricted to leave Boston forever and for good because an indictment was ready for him and others of his mostly loyal affiliates. The long reign of Bulger was ending and with him the Winter Hill Gang. Boston and South Boston was starting to build a new page in its history. For South Boston a new birth. Whitey for Boston became a ghost and the most common question became after Jimmy Bulger’s departure: “Where are you, Whitey?”. On the run, but…where?

What it was sure is that at first Whitey left Boston with Teresa Stanley one of his women, but later, Teresa, four children to growing up, preferred them to Whitey Bulger.

The plan B was Catherine Greig, the second affectionate Whitey’s lover. Kevin Weeks one of the affiliates of Bulger would have told later that moments and the incredible romantic, passionate reunion between the two lovers: the mobster and the girl.

For other 15 years Whitey stayed “secluded” in exclusive places. The latest one Santa Monica where he lived most of the time with Catherine Greig. It was a peaceful condition, Bulger with the time became friends with the various neighbors, and someone respected and loved by everyone. To him it was strained when on tv once captured they started to pictured him as a horrible criminal. From jail he wrote to all his neighbors: “I am not the man they are saying I am”.

Why Bulger was arrested? After all he had spent 15 peaceful years and no one disturbed him. Well The FBI once captured Osama bin Laden (at the top ten list of the most wanted criminals) focused later the attention on the second one, who became after the departure of Bin Laden the most wanted criminal: Whitey Bulger.

Two millions of dollars as a reward for everyone able to give informations able to let them capture the mobster good money and a new strategy, a new “key” of access for arriving to Bulger that, according to the Federals maybe could have paid as well: it was necessary not anymore focusing on Whitey Bulger but on his companion Catherine Greig.

They were right. Thanks to Cathy’s passion for stray cats, shared with an ex Miss Iceland 1974, Whitey was put directly in jail again and for the latest time.

The ex Miss Iceland Anna Bjornsdottir in fact once returned in the capital of his place Reykjavik, watching on tv the international CNN recognized the nice couple with which she was sharing moments in Santa Monica. But they weren’t who they said they were, the family Gasko, but the dangerous criminal Bulger and his companion Catherine Greig.

The trial couldn’t give any kind of escapism to Bulger: two life sentences plus 5 years.

While at the moment Bulger has requested thanks to his attorney Brennan a new trial and this time he wants to explain some facts, Black Mass, the first reconstruction of the real criminal and personal story will be launched for the first time in a Warner Br.production in the USA this next sept 18th and introduced in a world premiere at the Venice Film Festival at the beginning of next month.

Directed by Scott Cooper, with Johnny Depp johnny as Whitey Bulger, the other actors includes: Joel Edgerton, Benedict Cumberbatch, Rory Cochrane, Jesse Plemons, Kevin Bacon, W. Earl Brown, David Harbour, Dakota Johnson, Julianne Nicholson, Corey Stoll, Peter Sarsgaard, Adam Scott, and Juno Temple.

The third trailer convinced The Boston Globe although the newsmagazine added Johnny “looks exceedingly malevolent in the role of Bulger”.

Let’s hope that the Bostonians, jealous of their accent like also of their city and of their Sons, good or bad that they can be won’t notice if the accent of the various protagonists (all worried for it) is a Boston’s accent or not 🙂

Joel Edgerton in the role of John Connolly: “I still don’t know what the Bostonians are going to say about my accent. I’m just going to be sure I don’t pop into Boston until I find out whether I’m welcomed back or not“.

The movie is based on the book written by the two investigative reporters and writers of The Boston Globe: Gerard O’Neill and Dick Lehr, Black Mass: 9781782116233-Black-Mass-2-392x600 Whitey Bulger,518WXTD4LkL._SY344_BO1,204,203,200_  the FBI and a devil’s deal.

Director Cooper said of Johnny Depp days ago as Whitey Bulger   10478167_294206720752978_7334248991399274460_n 10442990_294206704086313_332698468647131041_n 0 : “A lot of people on set knew Whitey Young Whiteywhitey 23 'Whitey' Bulger pictured in this undated photo bulger 30 (Bulger during the various phases of his exisgtence) intimately.

They got chills at Johnny’s resemblance. Some of them couldn’t even look at him. It’s easy to be the mustache twirling villain but this performance couldn’t be further from that. He is truly gifted”.

The movie script has been written by Mark Mallouk and Jez Butterworth, produced by John Lesher, Brian Oliver, Scott Cooper, Patrick McCormick and Tyler Thompson. Executive producer: Brett Ratner, James Packer, Peter Mallouk, Ray Mallouk, Christopher Woodrow, Brett Granstaff, Gary Granstaff, Phil Hunt and Compton Ross.

World premiere of Black Mass in Venice at the beginning of september during the Venice Film Festival.
