The Departed

See Departed for Nicholson’s Joker meets Godfather routine. See Departed for DiCaprio’s portrayal of what angst and vulnerability really ought to be like. See Departed for the superb Matt Damon, for the brilliant Alec Baldwin and the equally good Martin Sheen. But most of all, see Departed for Mark Wahlberg’s Dignam. For a guy who gives the term, ‘shooting from the lip’ almost a complex and in the process ends up elevating profanities to an artform. For a guy who barely occupies a third of the screentime, yet walks away with the best lines and every damn scene he’s in. See this damn flick for all these things. And as Dignam would have said, your satisfaction is guaran-fuckin-teed
