#21: The Departed (2006, Nicholson/Wahlberg/Damon/DiCaprio/fuckton of others, Warner Brothers)

Scorsese is my all time favorite director. Putting my bias aside, this is the first of four of his films on my list. Bias included, I probably could've included ten. Love/hate relationship with this movie, actually. There's nothing wrong with the movie itself. It's the fact that Scorsese won his only Best Director award for this film. I try not to get worked up about awards, but for fuck sake, when you're not winning Best Director (or Best Picture, for that matter) for Mean Streets, Taxi Driver, Raging Bull or GoodFellas, there's a problem here.
