The Departed

"The Departed, directed by Martin Scorsese, starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Matt Damon, Jack Nicholson, Martin Sheen, Vera Farmiga, Mark Wahlberg, Anthony Anderson, Ray Winstone, Alec Baldwin and Amanda Lynch.

A remake of a 2002 Hong Kong film called "Wu jian dao" (Infernal Affairs), "The Departed" tells the story of two men from opposite sides of the law who are undercover within the Boston State Police department and the Irish mafia, but violence and bloodshed boil when discoveries are made, and the moles are dispatched to find out their enemy’s identities. Written by William Monahan, based on an earlier screenplay by Felix Chong and Siu Fai Mak."

This film is one of the most interesting in terms of PLOT that I have seen for a long time.  It came recommended strongly by my son.  I wanted to blog it here because I would highly recommend it for anyone who wants to be engaged for the duration.  It moves along and truly it demonstrates that young actors like Leonardo DiCaprio and Matt Damon are coming into their own in terms of skill and character roles.  Awesome acting!
