The Departed 2006

Based on the Chinese-linguage Hong Kong gangster film of the same name ("Wu jian dao"), "Infernal Affairs" will be reset in Boston amid Irish-American mobsters and the cops who are their nemeses. The film was written by William Monahan. Damon would play a gangster who has infiltrated the Boston police department as part of its cadet class and has been steadily rising through the ranks. DiCaprio will play a cop who's been deep undercover inside the mob and is starting to come unglued. Each side works feverishly to flush the mole out, with deadly consequences. (read more)

I recently rewatched this film in preparation for this review. I am a fan of lists. There is a part of us that can be explained by the...

The Departed Movie Review by Bobby B (2/28/2008)

In the opening shot of The Departed Jack Nicholson walks through the dark fabric of our minds. He is here because we know him, because he's been a star for forty years, because the career of Jack Nicholson is a cultural map of America in the last half of the 20th Century to now, because he is a living symbol of what we...

The Departed Movie Review by Cheerleader Dan (2/27/2008)

Not enough Cheering...
I initially was under the impression that if Jack Nicholson's character was not a cheerleader he at least cheerleading stock in him, as evidenced by his suave demeanor and snappy fashion sence. As it turned out he was a murderer and mafia don, my mistake.
Good acting, Good directing and a thought...

Two just-graduated officers from Massachusetts State Police Academy follow opposite sides of the law: William Costigan is assigned to work undercover with the Irish mobster Frank Costello to get evidences to arrest him. His true identity is only known by his superiors Dignam and Oliver Queenan. The protégée of Costello,...
