Reel Psyched is our weekly rundown of movies we’re excited to see.
Whitey: United States of America v. James J. Bulger
A super in-depth documentary about James “Whitey” Bulger, a violent mob boss who spent most of his career having never been slapped with so much as a misdemeanor. Directed by Joe Berlinger, this documentary explores the corrupt judicial system, crooked cops, and powerful crime networks that allowed Whitey to get away with it all, at least for a while. If you’re into watching white men strut around and blab on about being badasses, or if you’re a little less cynical than myself and just love a good true-crime thriller, this is definitely the film for you. Now thru July 10 at IFC Center, tickets, $14.
