I dreamt that Little Miss Sunshine won the Academy Award for Best Picture and felt strangely torn.
Now, in my waking life, I profess a conviction that The Departed deserves the award for Best Picture. Why? A great ensemble cast with standout Leonardo DiCaprio. Plus,a love triangle storyline that was executed in a refreshing manner with the talented Vera Farmiga.
The Departed is not cinematic perfection by any means-- Jack Nicholson's portrayal of Frank Costello disrupts the viewer's complete delve into an otherwise believable mob/cop world. Still, I wanted to discuss The Departed for days after viewing.
