The Departed


Martin Scorsese's latest look at the Irish gangs in America revolves around two young cops. One becomes a mole for the Irish mob, inside the police force. The other becomes a mole for the cops, inside the Mob. After some time, each group realises that they have a mole in their midst, and set about flushing him out. As luck would have it, each mole is assigned to flush the other out. The film has been nominated for numerous awards, and at the time of writing comes in at number 80 on the IMDB's Top 250 list. Sensitive viewers are advised to skip this.
