The Departed (2006)

“Heaven holds the faithful departed”

I am a little biased when it comes to this movie because I watch it about four times a year.  It is a typical Martin Scorsese mob movie with plenty of wit, blood, and foul language about the corruption of the Boston State Troopers.  This star studded cast (Leonardo DiCaprioMatt DamonJack Nicholson, and so much more) are casted perfectly in their roles.  This is also one of my favorite cinematography movies shot by Michael Ballhaus, who also did movies such as Goodfellas and Gangs of New York.  The plot line is confusing at first, but the last thirty minutes will have you sitting on the edge of your seat and shooting profane words to your T.V.  This is a movie that should be on your “Must See Before I Die” list. 

4.5 out of 5 stars
