The Departed 2006 info:-
The Departed 2006, legendary director Martin Scorsese takes the helm for this tale of questionable loyalties and blurring identities set in the South Boston organized crime scene and inspired by the wildly popular 2002 Hong Kong crime film Infernal Affairs.
As the police force attempts to reign in the increasingly powerful Irish mafia, authorities are faced with the prospect of sending in an undercover agent or seeing their already frail grip on the criminal underworld slip even further. Billy Costigan (Leonardo DiCaprio) is a young cop looking to make a name for himself in the world of law enforcement.
Collin Sullivan (Matt Damon) is a street-smart criminal who has successfully infiltrated the police department with the sole intention of reporting their every move to ruthless syndicate head Frank Costello (Jack Nicholson).
When Costigan is assigned the task of working his way into Costello’s tightly guarded inner circle, Sullivan is faced with the responsibility of rooting out the informer before things get out of hand.
With the stakes constantly rising and time quickly running out for the undercover cop and his criminal counterpart, each man must work feverishly to reveal his counterpart before his identity is exposed by the other.

Sullivan is accepted into the Special Investigations Unit, which focuses on organized crime. Before graduating from the state police academy, William “Billy” Costigan Jr. is recruited by Captain Queenan and Staff Sergeant Dignam to go undercover, as his family ties to organized crime make him a perfect infiltrator.
He drops out of the academy and serves time in prison on a fake assault charge to increase his credibility. Each man infiltrates his respective target organization. Sullivan begins a romance with police psychiatrist Madolyn Madden.
Costigan has a session with her as a condition of his probation, and they begin a relationship, too. After Costello escapes a sting operation, each mole becomes aware of the other’s existence. Sullivan is told to find the “rat” and asks Costello for information to identify the informer.
Costigan follows Costello into a porn theater, where Costello gives Sullivan an envelope containing personal information on his crew members. Costigan chases Sullivan through Chinatown, but neither man sees the other’s face.
In addition, Sullivan accidentally stabs a truck loader, thinking him to be his pursuer. Sullivan later has Queenan tailed to a meeting with Costigan on the roof of an empty building.

The Departed 2006 Production:-
In January 2003, Warner Bros., producer Brad Grey, and actor/producer Brad Pitt bought the rights to remake the Hong Kong film Infernal Affairs (2002) from Media Asia for $1.75 million. William Monahan was secured as a screenwriter, and later Martin Scorsese.
Who admired Monahan’s script came on board as director. In March 2004, United Press International announced that Scorsese would be remaking Infernal Affairs and setting it in Boston, and Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt were slated to star.
Pitt, tentatively scheduled to play Sullivan, later declined to play the role, saying a younger actor should play the part; he decided to produce the film instead. Scorsese’s associate Kenneth Lonergan suggested Matt Damon, who grew up in Boston, for the part of Sullivan, and Scorsese asked Jack Nicholson to play Costello.
Nicholson wanted the film to have “something a little more” than the usual gangster film, and screenwriter Monahan came up with the idea of basing the Costello character on Irish-American gangster Whitey Bulger.
This gave the screenplay an element of realism – and an element of dangerous uncertainty, because of the wide-ranging carte blanche the FBI gave Bulger in exchange for revealing information about fellow gangsters.
A technical consultant on the film was Tom Duffy, who had served three decades on the Boston Police Department, particularly as an undercover detective investigating the Irish mob.
The Departed was officially greenlit by Warners in early 2005 and began shooting in the spring of 2005. Although some of the films was shot on location in Boston, for budgetary and logistical reasons many scenes, interiors, in particular, were shot in locations and sets in New York City, which had tax incentives for filmmakers that Boston at the time did not.
The Departed 2006 Critical Response:-
On review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes, the film holds a 91% approval rating based on 277 reviews, with an average rating of 8.24/10. The website’s critics consensus reads, “Featuring outstanding work from an excellent cast, The Departed is a thoroughly engrossing gangster drama.
With the gritty authenticity and soupy morality, we come to expect from Martin Scorsese.”Entertainment Weekly put it on its end-of-the-decade “best of” list, saying: “If they’re lucky, directors make one classic film in their career.

His 2006 Irish Mafia masterpiece kept the streak alive.” Metacritic, which uses a weighted average, assigned the film a score of 85 out of 100 based on 39 critics, indicating “universal acclaim”. Audiences polled by CinemaScore gave the film an average grade of “A–” on an A+ to F scale.
