Love the movie, I'll watch it anytime it comes on...

The ending is meh, don't like how they knocked off 3 people in a single scene, but hey, the rest of the movie is great.


I've heard, and it looks to be true from going back and paying close attention, that Scorsese puts an X in every scene in which someone is about to die.

True or not

I know in at least 2 of the scenes it is true... Especially the final. When Damon exits the elevator, the pattern of the carpet is giant Xs

Are you talking about actual characters or just the randoms that get killed?

Apparently it is true....


quote:

The Departed was also my favorite movie of 2006, in part because Scorsese seemed to be having fun again. For example, as an homage to Howard Hawks' classic 1932 Scarface, Scorsese scattered Xs throughout the movie (some more subtle than others), using them as a symbol of impending doom. (For some Scarface examples, go here).

I recently went through the film again on DVD to see how many Xs I could find. To avoid even a hint of spoilers, I've arranged the frames out of chronological order. But if you've seen The Departed, you'll get an extra kick out of these. And if you haven't, Warner Bros.is re-releasing it to theaters on Jan. 26, so no excuses.

If you liked it you should watch the original movie it was based on. Infernal Affairs

There's also an Infernal Affairs 2 and 3.

It's Chinese and the dubbed version sucks

Both are great movies though.

Whitey Bulger. He was actually convicted in Boston. Ran the Irish mob, or a good bit of it, for years in Boston. Also ratted to the FBI on the inner workings of the Italian mob in exchange for a certain degree of protection.

Definitely one of my all time favorites. It's one of those movies every time is see it on the wife knows I look no further. Even if we were in the middle of another show/movie, she just gets up and goes to the back.
