Johnny Depp is back and "Black Mass" proves it. For those of us who believe he is the quintessential character actor, the rebirth couldn't have come soon enough. His acting in this film isn't the only thing worth celebrating, though. Finally, we have a mob and gangster movie worth our attention. Not since "Goodfellas" have fans of the genre had something to salivate over. This film is the real deal. The plot is thick with corruption. The violence is real and in your face. The character development is methodical. Even within a story that dominated the headlines, you are left waiting to see what happens next. Of course, like any good mob movie, you are left wondering who to root for and against. I, for one, am rooting for Johnny Depp to make more movies like this.
Be good to each other,
