“The Departed” by Martin Scorsese (2006)

Incredible casting, best film of the year at Oscars 2007.

A smart game of different layers of who-knows-what and who-works-for-whom between police and local mafia structures in Boston.

Jack Nicholson in a characteristic role reminding his “The Witches of Eastwick” times.

Beautiful Vera Farmiga (perhaps one of the most underestimated roles in this film) – amazingly playing internal conflicts with external body language clashing with what the character is saying.

Great Mark Whalberg, very good Di Caprio, average Matt Damon (*I really want to see Matt Damon as a) baddie, b) in a shabby role), respectful Martin Sheen.

Amazing amazing casting and a grabbing story. A must.
