Veteran Documentary Filmmaker Joe Berlinger Talks About his Newest Movie, “Whitey: United States of America v. James J. Bulger”

A new documentary that explores the life of recently convicted mobster James “Whitey” Bulger premiered this week to a sold-out audience at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah.

The New York Times reports that the film, “Whitey: United States of America v. James J. Bulger,” explores Bulger’s life, his crimes and his 2013 murder and racketeering trial.

The filmmaker, Joe Berlinger, is an acclaimed documentarian who also was behind “Brother’s Keeper” (1992) and the “Paradise Lost” trilogy.

“While the movie aims for balance, its contentions are simple and twofold: that the full measure of the FBI’s complicity in Bulger’s reign of violence was not allowed to be brought out in court, and that history and US citizens will not be served until that happens,” The Times wrote.
