On this episode of the Reel World Theology Podcast:
Black Mass, based on the book Black Mass: The True Story of an Unholy Alliance Between the FBI and the Irish Mob recounts the infamous life of James “Whitey” Bulger. The film sports an incredible cast and has drawn much buzz as a “return to form” for it’s lead, Johnny Depp. While we feel we’re treated to quite the performance by Depp, was that enough for this biopic to really get at the heart of Bulger more than previous takes on the story? We take a look at the difference in a series of events and telling an interesting story as well as comparing our goodness to that of others. We hope you enjoy it!
This week’s panel included Tyler Smith and Josh Crabb.
