The Departed Fans Have Launched a Campaign to Fix the Movie's One Gaping Flaw
Despite his legendary career, it's hard to believe that Martin Scorsese has only won the Academy Award for Best Director once.
That was in 2006 for his masterful crime thriller, The Departed.
It's certainly among his best films, and might be his greatest collaboration with Leonardo DiCaprio.
The film also took home Best Picture, which remains the only Scorsese film to win the most prestigious Academy Award.
Hell, it was so good it even earned Mark Wahlberg a nomination for Best Supporting Actor.
Although it remains Scorsese's most acclaimed film—by Oscar standards—fans of the film have a big problem with one of the director's choices.
That comes in the very final scene of the film.
Matt Damon's Colin Sullivan—a crooked cop, who got literally everyone killed—comes home to his apartment with some groceries and finds Wahlberg's potty-mouthed Sergeant Dignam waiting for him in full scrubs with a silenced pistol.
