  • Eric Harris

    Movie Critic


    Gangster movies have tended to glorify (intentionally or not) their subjects since the creation of the genre, but it is rare when there is a film that actively tries to make you hate the gangster.

    In the rare film in which the gangster is truly the antagonist, it is the law enforcement agent(s) that then get glorified (Brian De Palma’s “The Untouchables” comes to mind). “Black Mass” goes the extra mile making both the gangster and the main FBI agent terrible people.
