1. Some people say Scorsese got a mercy Oscar. This is untrue. That movie deserved ten Oscars.
2. Some people say it is too long. This is untrue. It could have been an hour longer, and I'd still think it was too short.
3. Some people say that it is Scorsese's best movie. This is untrue. It is _everyone's_ best movie. This is, quite simply, the best movie I've ever seen. And I watch at least one movie every single day, and have for the last ten years. I know movies.
I have a three-word review for The Departed: holy fucking shit.
