Gourmet Girl's Totally Food Related Film Reviews

Tuesday, October 10, 2006


If the second season of the Sopranos was a toothsomely smoky hunk of beef at the Burger Joint, then The Departed would be the supremely legendary slab of porter house steak at the Peter Luger Steakhouse. Don't even think about asking for the menu, just sit back and let Marty Scorsese take you on a wondrously wild ride. The film is as good as crime cinema gets. It even surpassed the original 2002 Hong Kong blockbuster, Infernal Affairs, with an edge-of-your-seat script and unbeatable sense of direction. Watch Scorsese's choreography and youll realize that its total sacrilege that he hasnt had an Oscar yet.

This movie makes me want to have:

Duck L'orange and that sky-high chocolate concoction Matt Damon's character ordered in one scene.
