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.
