Benedict Cumberbatch is primed and ready in costume as politician Billy ‘The Corrupt Midget’ Bulger as he arrives on the set for his first day of filming of ‘Black Mass’ in Boston, Massachusetts on June 23, 2014.
These last two episodes were about healing the old wounds between old friends. Rust Cohle may believe that it took a near-death- experience, in which he saw his departed daughter and his deceased dad, for him to change his view of the world. But it’s clear to Pizzolatto–and us– that seeing Marty again was every bit as important in Rust’s transformation. It’s about these two guys who need each other but can’t say it. For all their physical courage, they lack the courage to, well, embrace life. And as finely wrought as [the last lines of dialogue are], it’s Marty’s little laugh as he helps his friend to the car that sums up the arc of this story. (x)
