"The Departed" is the first movie in a long time I've actually wanted to see in theatres. In fact, if I can score babysitting, I'm totally there.
Martin Scorsese, the director of "The Departed", has somehow never won an Oscar, despite being nominated seven times. "Goodfellas", which ranks #2 on my ten favourite movies of all-time list, lost out to "Dances With Wolves". I kid you not. "Raging Bull" somehow lost to "Ordinary People". Scorsese gets no respect, no respect at all.
The man is a true talent and a rarity in the biz. Here's hoping "The Departed" is as good as I hope it is and that Oscar is paying attention.
