David Walsh's review of the film, The Departed, referenced in a message by
Louis, is absolutely brilliant. This was possibly the worst gangster film I
have ever seen, with no redeeming value. With incredibly reactionary
politics, not to mention horrible dialogue, unbelievable scenes, idiotic
characters, and bad, bad acting. Jack Nicholson should retire if he can't
do better than this. DeCaprio is just awful as is Matt Damon. Plus an
incredibly patriarchal and misanthropic worldview throughout. You have to
wonder what Scorsese would do if the fascists took over. Wear jackboots
It's just great that the director tells us that the film reflects his anger
at the way things have gone since 9/11, the immorality of our leaders and
the like. Well then do something about it. You've got money and influence.
What a jerk. He'll march his millions to the bank and live large and think
he's an artist. What a joke.
