The Departed: Oscar Winner & It Translates to Video

There have certainly been other films directed by Martin Scorsese deserving the Best Director and the Best Picture Awards, but this year it finally happened. The Departed winning BEST PICTURE has convinced me to look closely at the clips online and I've added the movie to my Netflix queue. The clips I've watched seem to have that intimacy with closeups and storytelling that I'm convinced is key to translating a film to home video where most voting Academy members view nominated pictures. I'll blog more once I see it later this week. But here are some other clips showcasing the film. It even appears to translate well for online viewing.

Thanks for the info...I'll hopefully be able to check it out. As for what's going on in my world, I'm busy casting a SAG film right now, and might possibly be working on the casting of a few more over the next few weeks. I also have an audition this afternoon, so we'll see what happens. Things are starting to pickup :) How's everything back in good old New Wilmington? Doing anything fun for Spring Break?
