The Departed

The Departed ★★★★½

The Depahted. Another Scorsese gangster movie. I liked this movie on my first watch but I wasn't a fan of the ending initially, it left a hollow feeling. On the third or fourth rewatch the ending is far more satisfying. This is one of my favorite Matt Damon peformance and possibly the best Mark Wahlberg performance (doesn't say much thouhj). Leo is good but not on his apex game here. Nicholson also just okay. The rat gnawing might have been a bit much. Alec Baldwin had the shittiest Boston accent. Really love the interwoven character dynamic. The whole thing plays like a thriller and Scorsese delivers another excellent script. 9.2/10
