Martin Scorsese has become one of the worlds greatest filmmakers. With films such as Goodfellas, Casino, Taxi Driver, Raging Bull, Gangs of New York, and The Aviator Scorsese has not lost his touch. The Departed was yet another amazing crime/mobster drama that carries class, style, and the Scorsese talent.
The film's story revolves around two rats(DiCaprio and Damon), Leo selling out the mob as an undercover cop and Matt tipping off the mob as a dirty cop. Neither party knows the other yet their lives intertwine and cross uncomfortably close while the both seek to hunt the other out.
Amazing performances from an all star cast including Mark Wahlberg, Charlie Sheen, Alec Baldwin, Leo D, Matt Damon, and Jack Nicholson being nothing short of amazing as the mob boss.
The film had the gritty Scorsese touch and cultural class with his soundtrack and cinematography. His ending was typical of his other movies which is still a compliment. An amazing movie. One of the best of the year so far.
