BLACK MASS 2015 Wow!

We caught BLACK MASS today. I must admit to being rather surprised just how good it was. As far as I'm concerned this is the best thing Johnny Depp has done since DONNIE BRASCO. Depp plays the FBI's most wanted, James "Whitey" Bulger. The film follows Boston Irish Mafia gangster Bulger from the late 70's till he ended up on the Most Wanted list.
The film has a even, deliberate pace that moves everything along just right. There is plenty of nice period detail etc here. The supporting cast is also good. Well worth a trip to the cinema in my opinion.
