Or maybe I should just say, F*%#n' A. I just saw The Departed, because I read really good reviews of it. Okay, and I'll admit to the eye-candy aspect. In this regard, I was mostly considering Matt Damon, because Leo DiCaprio always seemed too.... young. Unformed. I thought that about Matt Damon, too, till I saw Bourne Identity. Yow. Let me just say, Mr. DiCaprio has grown up. He's a right good actor, too. Who knew? Well, he was good in Gilbert Grape but that wasn't a grown-up role. If all I'd been expecting was eye candy, though, my socks would have been blown off even further than they were, which is pretty much the next county over, anyway. That was one of the best movies I've seen in years. I was totally engrossed. Good story, enough twists for Chubby Checker, and the violence (of which there was.... ummmmm..... plenty.....) was so real that I was wincing and wanted to hide behind the little old ladies in front of me a few times. I may have to see it again to get the details straight.

Oh, and I want the soundtrack. During the movie, I was pleased to note that there were long stretches with no music at all, which was totally appropriate. When there was music, though, it was well chosen.

I suppose there is something else I might ought to write about, but whatever it might have been has been completely pushed aside. If anything important occurs to me, I'll post later.
