Oscars

A Twisted Tale of Loyalties

I watched this movie a while ago, but I just now got a chance to write about it.

I've been watching all the movies that won the Oscar for Best Picture. Next on my list was the 2005 winner, The Departed, directed by Martin Scorsese and starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Matt Damon, and Jack Nicholson.

The Departed is a crime drama that delves into the Boston underworld, following both a police informant and a shady detective.

The other nominees for Best Picture that year were Babel, Letters from Iwo Jima, Little Miss Sunshine, and The Queen. In addition to Best Picture, Crash also won Best Director, Best Film Editing and Best Writing (Adapted Screenplay).
