Just finished the Departed and man, that was a great flick. Just when you think you've got it figured out, BLAM, and then after that, BLAM, it all comes together. Great movie and you may have heard of it and its awards. Can't say I've seen the original yet, but I've wanted to. Infernal Affairs tops many lists of must see movies. That said, I don't think this film should have won for adapted screenplay. Adapted to me, means, not from another screenplay. That's just cribbing. If the plot was taken from anything else, it would be all right, maybe even a movie of yesteryear, but a movie that is only several years old and foreign? Fuck that noise. That's not adaptation, that's just stealing.
