Departed reviewer too faint of heart

by Beacon Staff • October 11, 2006

The Departed is Martin Scorsese's most violent film? Really? Has your reviewer only seen The Age of Innocence and The Aviator? And why is it surprising that a movie about the mob is violent? Last I checked, mobsters weren't pacifists. I know a movie review is only opinion, but in my opinion, The Beacon's review of The Departed could not have been more inaccurate in all respects.,Dear Editor,
