The Heat is Back for Scorsese!

Reclaiming the genre which made him a modern film master, Martin Scorsese returns to form with The Departed. Amazing trailer. Jack Nicholson and Leonardo DiCaprio are in peak form. While this is the first time Nicholson has acted for Scorsese, the two both cut their cinematic teeth around the same time at Roger Corman's studios. Eschewing the epic scope of his last two films, Gangs of New York and The Aviator, Scorsese has gotten back to business with a genre no one does better than he does. Like Fast Eddie said at the end of The Color of Money, the Scorsese-directed sequel to The Hustler, "I'm back!" The same is true for this cinematic master. It's good to see him doing what he does best. With The Aviator, fans wanted to see Scorsese win because of his career. With The Departed, I believe we may see him win because he deserves to win for this film!

This looks pretty good. I see a pieces of Goodfellas in there, and a shot from Cape Fear, and the logo at the end of the trailer looks like Mean Streets. I'm definitely going to see this in the theater, but I can't tell yet how good it's gonna be..
