Re: Movies Seen in 2010

The Departed (2006) [A] - the film that won Scorsese his Oscar, which consequently has led to some allegations that the award was really just a consolation prize for past great works not winning, but, while there's certainly some consolation involved, The Departed is a great film on its own. Really impressive cast, with actors like Alec Baldwin turning up in what are more or less bit parts. This is the third collaboration between Scorsese and DiCaprio (with the fourth due out shortly, and more in the works), and its a great performance (as well as from Matt Damon). The ending bit I found confusing; why didn't Madolyn say anything? Did she tell Mark Wahlberg ('cause I don't see how else he could have known)?
