Based on real events. The film centres on the life of Whitey Bulger, one of the hardest criminals in the history of Boston. He was the leader of the criminal organization Winter Hill, and the brother of a local senator. After a series of bloody crimes, he becomes an FBI informant and over the course of 30 years, secretly works for the Bureau gathering dirt on the Mafia clan operating on his territory. In this way, Whitey Bulger himself long maintained his immunity from the state police…

A completely unrecognizable Johnny Depp stars as one of the most famous criminals in America (who, by the way, was a prototype for Jack Nicholson’s character in Scorsese’s “The Departed”). The film is a screen adaptation of Dick Lehr and Gerard O’Neill’s book, “Black Mass: The True Story of an Unholy Alliance Between the FBI and the Irish Mob.” The film premiered at the Venice Film Festival (2015).
