Johnny Depp wreaks havoc as the deranged Whitey Bulger, leading member of South Boston’s Irish mafia and No 1 on the FBI’s most wanted list, heading straight for the Oscars. The film that drove this year’s Venice Biennale to delirium.

Johnny Depp is nearly unrecognizable as Whitey Bulger, brother to a Massachusetts Senator and leading member of South Boston’s Irish mafia in the 70s, who went so far as to collaborate with the FBI in order to take out the rival family that was threatening him. Scott Cooper’s (Crazy Heart) agonizing thriller marks the return of the chameleon actor in a performance that drove this year’s Venice Biennale to delirium and is already considered a surefire bet for the next Oscars.
