The Departed is a great story about conflict, greed, privilege, drama, double-crossing, and all-out anarchy thanks to its brilliant cast. DiCaprio, Damon, Wahlberg, Baldwin, Sheen, Farmiga, and Nicholson show you that growing up on the Catholic rich streets of Boston can take you to the highest of highs and lowest of lows. You’ll probably get confused on who is working for who or who is ratting on who, but when the final bullet is fired, you’ll be shocked at who comes out on top. The Departed and The Town would be the top movies to show how gritty and dirty Boston can be.

Great review! I saw this recently and while I thought it ran a bit long I was still very impressed.
It’s funny to think sometimes great movies run long because everyone needs enough screen time, not because they need to move the story along. ha ha
Have you seen Infernal Affairs, the Hong Kong film this is based on? I think it’s even better.
I have not, is it subtitled?
