The Departed: Damon Or Dicaprio- - - --who Was Better?

I know I am two years late, but I finally saw the Departed.

And yes, it was every bit as good as people said it was, if not better.

The performances were stunning, Wahlberg deserved his Oscar, and he has impressed

me for for a long time.

Nicholson showed why he is one of the greatest ever.

Even DiCaprio managed to impress me, for only the first time , and he got lots of nominations

for more than his pretty face.

But none of them impressed me as much as Damon. His is one of the most impressive performances

I have seen in ages. Almost flawless, natural. . . . ,  . . .Which is why I am surprised he was almost

invisible on the awards slate.

So what's your takewho was better?

Wahlberg was good. . . .but I have seen him do better, notably in Boogie Nights.

think his role did not lend itself to subtlety and overacted in bits.

DiCaprio's role was always going to garner all the attention cause of the role he played.

I just could not forget this was still the pretty boy of Titanic. Some of his violent scenes were less than

convincing.

Damon was just class. I still can't get over the performance. It was so even keeled, so natural. He seemed

in character in all his scenes. . . . .

But I will tell you who prolly outdid both of them. . . .The lady. She was fabulous as well. Public Service Shrink.

Magical.

The film was fantastic
