Top 10 Part 5/6

Tomorrow's the big day! This is one of my only entries that might actually appear on most critic's 'top 10' lists this year. I liked this film alot, and if the ending wasn't a visually didactic flow of non-stop violence, I would have loved it. It was, nevertheless, one of my favorite movies of the year.

6) The Departed – Now this is funny. Just when Martin Scorsese gives up on Oscar-baiting historical epics like ‘The Aviator’ and ‘Gangs of New York’, he makes his most enjoyable film since 1995’s ‘Casino’. The director works with a huge all-star cast – the best of which was Mark Wahlberg in a role that will hopefully earn him some statues– to tell the story of two moles working for different sides of the law. Will this movie finally get Scorsese his Oscar? I don’t care, because I was having too much fun.

I won't be leaving a clue for tomorrow since it will basically be for the rest of the list, but tune in tomorrow for 'Numbers 1-5'.
