01.17.16Internet I liked this one ok. I'm thinking it's generally a bad idea to watch the documentary before the film version because this felt oddly fatigued to, probably because I already knew all the details from seeing that Whitey Bulger doc on netflix. I liked the cast and Depp did a fine job, but the plot felt meandering and sluggish and I never really got a sense of who Bulger was other than a criminal. Furthermore, I never got a sense of him changing or prospering after the Italian boss got locked up... All in all I felt like it was a pale imitation of Nicholson in The Departed (ironic). But you know, I liked Crazy Heart and Out of the Furnace and I wouldn't call this one bad... just a bit lethargic for a crime story.
