Who says Martin Scorsese can’t make commercial blockbusters? The 2006 crime drama The Departed is not only one of Scorsese’s most successful films, it’s also the one that finally won him his first (and to date only) Best Director Oscar.
The film is a remake of a Hong Kong movie called Infernal Affairs, and follows a young man from Boston (Leonardo DiCaprio) who aims to join the police academy but is recruited as part of an undercover team to infiltrate the crew of a dangerous mob boss, played by Jack Nicholson.
At the same time, the mob boss has his own informant trained up through the Boston police (Matt Damon) who is trying to sniff out the rat in his organization. This is a sprawling, epic cat-and-mouse crime thriller captured in the way only a master like Scorsese can.
