5.0 out of 5 stars a mob film for women, 25 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Departed (2006) [DVD] (DVD)
um... always thought that this is the best dicaprio has ever been cast as. he emotes the hell out of this character. the rest of the ensemble is great too. i love the editing and the cinematography. it develops a fluid style that occasionally almost seems to float the film, it sort of loses anchoring in chronology, which is disorienting but also amazing to me.

i also rarely feel the plot crunching to get into gear, i like how howard shore interpreted the main theme as a dance. it sorta fits.

there is A LOT of swearing but personally that's ok with me. i like how the script amps up the fatherlessness of the two leads. and i like how it comments on the inherent machismo of the mob and the police. in a way that makes it a mob film for women.
