Oh my god how is this movie not brought up more. Marty does a perfect job of both mirroring and contrasting the two leads together. Di Caprio gives a performance that's right up there with his best and Jack Nicholson is just so much fun to watch as the manic seasoned criminal. But oh my god it's been a while since I've had such distain for one character as I did for Colin Sullivan. The last 30 minutes of the movie I was just wishing he would get his and when he finally did I literally paused the movie cheered and then rewinded it 2 or 3 more times just to bask in it's glory. I think this is easily one of Scorsese's best and deserves more attention
