The Joe Baccala Story  2011 (written and directed by Rocco Mesiti) is a satire and  spoof passing itself off as a documentary.  "Wannabe" Giuseppe Baccala, aka "Joe Baccala", is  simply a self-proclaimed wiseguy. Everyone thought he was a "madeguy" including himself.  The story is narrated by Joe Baccala and his childhood friend Billy C. from  undisclosed locations. This "mockumentary" uses  humor to bring  attention to  the bigger issues: 40 years of Hollywood and mass media’s stereotypical portrayal of Italians Americans, pop culture and society’s acceptance of the mafioso and guido image, and those (like Joe Baccala)  who take on that  identity.
