But Children of Men is among the greatest films ever made, and was AT LEAST as good as The Departed.
Evidently, I may be in the minority on this board, but I disagree completely with everything in that quote.
Children of Men was a good movie, and it probably deserved a nomination, but it wasn't much better (if at all) than the other nominees. I've seen all of them except Letters from Iwo Jima. I definitely prefer The Departed to CoM, and The Queen, Little Miss Sunshine, and Babel are all toss-ups IMO. I've only seen Babel once, but I really enjoyed it (if memory serves). All are good movies.
