The Departed (2006)
A Masterpiece of the Millennium
Having to admit that I was skeptical that Martin Scorsese can pull up a new great movie like he did in the past 3 decades (Mean Streats, Raging Bull, Goodfellas and Casino to name a few) especially being ignored by the Oscar committee for over 40 years of great work!!!, I was skeptical in the beginning of the quality of this movie. Yet Having the Legendary director with full star cast including Jack Nicholson, Leonardo DiCaprio, Martin Sheen, Alec Baldwin, Matt Damon and Mark Wahlberg who could miss a movie like that?!!! I have to admit that I spent some of the finest 150+ Mins in my life watching this magnificent movie.
I have to be honest that I would never have thought that it would be half as good as it was. Me being a person who watched thousands of movies in my life there is a little room for surprises to me but I was SHOCKED.
This movie will be held in the movies hall of fame to be one of the wittiest , brilliantly acted and directed movies of all time. Not a single minute of boredom in over two and half hours of brilliance. This movie just cracked its way in my Top 10 List ever. There are no words that describe the script smoothness and slickness throughout the whole movie. Leornard Di Caprio have entered in a new dimension in his acting skills and now he is not the boy with pretty face , no this Guy can on par to the greatest actors alive now. Nothing short of brilliant. No need to mention Jack Nicholson because he is the master who never really misses , Alec Baldwin, Matt Damon and Mark Wahlberg probably have done the roles of their lives. I haven't mentioned Vera Farmiga as she is pushing her way into stardom with the act she did in this movie.
Throughout the movie you will feel no one is really acting and it's the real thing you are watching. Excellent camera control and flashbacks that really don't interrupt the movie flow but just gives you a glimpse of the background of every character.
If you don't like Scorsese or DiCaprio or any of the great film cast or you being offended by violence or profane language, I Still advise you to push yourself to watch this movie because it's like an experience which you will never forget. For the younger audience who haven't watched the Great movies like Godfather , Goodfellas , Pulp Fiction, etc.. you will probably believe that this is the Best Movie you have seen in your life. Go watch it, enjoy it, buy it on DVD, Tell your kids about it and pass it on to your grand children . It'S UNMISSABLE!!
And Yes Folks this is better than Goodfellas , Raging Bull and Mean Streets combined. No offense To De Niro cause he is still my favorite actor ever. Long live Scorsese!!!
