Mini review: The Departed

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.
