QUICK REVIEWS: The Departed (episode 21)

QUICK REVIEWS is back in action!  This time, I’m taking a look at The Departed, another action crime drama from Martin Scorsese.  Man, nobody does mob movies like Scorsese. The screenplay is by William Monahan (this is probably his most famous movie) and starring… well, everybody. The Departed stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Matt Damon, Jack Nicholson, and Mark Wahlberg, Martin Sheen, Ray Winstone, Vera Farmiga, Anthony Anderson and Alec Baldwin.  You think they got enough stars?  I bet a lot (half?) of that $90 million dollar budget went to salaries!  It’s not Scorsese’s best movie, but I’m a fan of The Departed.

That’s a good question.  What is Scorsese’s best movie?  Goodfellas?

Confronting President Trump’s Muslim Ban

I’m old enough to remember when lying about an extramarital affair was grounds for impeachment.  These days, you can violate the constitution and collaborate with foreign saboteurs and we have to argue over whether a special prosecutor is needed.

I have high hopes for the 21st Century – let’s all get together and right the ship!
