The Departed (2006) - Martin Scorsese
Before seeing this, I knew I was in for a treat, given that it's a Scorsese movie, but The Departed was even better than I expected.
The acting is outstanding. Leonardo DiCaprio gives one of the best performance of his career.. Matt Damon and Jack Nicholson give their best performances too. Mark Wahlberg almost steals the show with the best lines. Ray Winstone, Alec Baldwin, and Martin Sheen are good, too.
Definitely one of the best films of the 00's. And easily one of the best remakes of all time. It's intense, funny, exciting, suspenseful, superbly acted, violent, has great characters, and has one of the most shocking scenes I've ever seen. And there's not a boring moment in it's two and a half hour running time.
The film was a critical and commercial success and won several awards, including four Oscars at the 79th Academy Awards: Best Picture, Best Director, Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Film Editing. Wahlberg was also nominated for Best Supporting Actor.
