I may try this from time to time. Last weekend we watched The Departed which won all sorts of Oscar buzz.

When I rented it, I thought "Oh Ryan will like this", but it's not really his style. I don't know what I thought the movie was since I hadn't seen the trailer, but here it is for you.

The movie did have a stick-y-ness factor. I couldn't get it out of my head after watching it. Yet into the 2nd of 3 hours, I ask Ryan to never let me rent movies like this again.
There is something so painful yet wonderful about this movies. Perhaps it's the tragedy of it all. Leo is a good actor for tragic movies like, Titanic, Romeo and Juliet and Basketball Diaries (shows my age). I remember hating Cold Mountain and yet it was beautiful. This movie has the same Love/Hate qualities.

I do feel so blessed I am none of the character nor am I married to any of them AND we don't live in Boston.

I haven't seen Departed, but I always seem to feel the same way after viewing Oscar nominated movies. I saw Little Miss Sunshine, and I'm still a bit "weirded out" about it.
