Chris Davis’s review published on Letterboxd :
The Departed can definitely be said to be one of the best films within its genre. I, for one, am happy to call this one of, if not my favorite film.
Aside from superb writing, tight storytelling and direction, as well as outstanding performances from pretty much every actor in the picture, the film just kicks ass on so many levels.
I don't think I truly have a "favorite" actor, but DiCaprio has been in 3 of my top films, so if anyone could possibly take up that role, I think it would definitely be him. Damon, Nicholson, Baldwin, Wahlberg, and even Martin Sheen, were amazing in their roles, and I believed every single line they delivered throughout the movie.
A true piece of gold, in my book!
