The Departed (Scorsese, 2006) - Oscar BM 2005

A crime boss adopts two boys to make them "his own" but being faithful is not easy in these circles.

Some really nice photography, and very nice editing ideas. I like how Scorsese wastes no time at all in getting the story going. Surprisingly 2.5 hours seem a little short, and Dignam's "showing up" in the last sequence is kind of unexpected in a strange way. Maybe I didn't get it.

Especidally the beginning is extremely well edited, all the character introductions are swift and to the point.

I still can't discern the dialects - should work on it.
