For years this has sat in my collection of DVDs. A couple of times it got started but the missus was not in the mood for some 18-rated foul-mouthed bloodfest.
Recently, I’ve started to hear good things about the new Scorsese – Shutter Island. For the moment I don’t want to read any more, see the trailer, nothing.
So tonight I did the next best thing – I pulled out The Departed.
For me, there was not a weak moment in the picture – it flowed from the first minute to the last. It sounded great. The cast was phenomenal.
This film is violent, obscene and completely fucking brilliant.
