Movie: The Departed

Managed to escape to the pictures recently to see The Departed. Warner Bros promote the movie with ‘Cop or criminal? What’s the difference if you’re facing a loaded gun.‘ Really great acting by Nicholson, Damon and Di Caprio. Back to Scorcese at his very best. If you can cope with the extreme violence then you will really appreciate the filming, the script, the setting and the score. Also one to see at the cinema rather than on DVD (unless you have a really big telly!). Is Di Caprio as good as the De Nero of Taxi Driver or Raging Bull? Probably not there yet but under Scorcese’s direction is getting better and better.
