We can’t vouch for the film, of course, but we like the look of “Black Mass” so far. In the same way the costumes and hair in “American Hustle” conjured a certain era, photos from the set of the Whitey Bulger movie remind us what some people and places around here looked like in the 1970s and ’80s. “Black Mass” director Scott Cooper had the cast and crew in Lynn on Wednesday, shooting a scene where Bulger, played by Johnny Depp, and Stephen Flemmi, played by Rory Cochrane, pick up Deborah Hussey, played by British actress Juno Temple, from the police station. Hussey, who was Flemmi’s stepdaughter, was later murdered by Bulger.
