  • Film Review: 'Whitey: United States of America V. James J. Bulger'

    If access is a documentary filmmaker's best friend, Joe Berlinger must have felt awfully lonely during the making of "Whitey," which chronicles the arrest and trial of the infamous Boston crime boss James Joseph Bulger, Jr. Unlike the unfettered access to defendants and courtrooms he enjoyed on his now now-classic "Brother's Keeper" and "Paradise Lost" trilogy, the director was here barred from Bulger's trial (where cameras were prohibited in the courtroom) and Bulger himself (on lockdown at a Massachusetts penitentiary). But from that seemingly impossible position, "Whitey" emerges as yet another of Berlinger's gripping, irony-laced snapshots of the American criminal justice system, in which his eponymous subject comes across as an incontestable monster who may, nevertheless, also be an unwitting patsy. Tightened by 20 minutes since its Sundance premiere, the docu opens day-and-date today via Magnolia.
