The Joe Baccala Story 2011 (written
and directed by Rocco Mesiti) is a
satirical narrative passing itself off as a documentary or a "mockumentary"."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 himself, his girlfriend Gina Rizzi, and childhood friend Billy C. Baccala convinces a group of associates into believing he's a made guy and recruits them into pulling off the big heist. In doing so they believe they'll gain entry into the Mafia! This "mockumentary" uses humor to bring attention to the bigger issues: Mainstream culture and society’s acceptance
and romanticism of the of the Mafia and the Mafioso , those (like Joe Baccala) who take on that identity and years of Hollywood stereotypical portrayal of Italians Americans.
