"he let the fact that he was working show"

This was actually one of my favorite parts of The Departed. Both Damon and Marky Mark's characters were supposed to be legitimate southie hoodlums, more or less, whereas Leo was supposed to be from the north shore and deerfield academy; it makes a lot of sense that his accent and mannerisms would be somewhat inauthentic. Even the pill-popping would argue for an overdramatic personality: Leo spent much of the movie capital-A Acting off of Nicholson while Nicholson capital-A Acted off of him, and amazingly, it all fit. That Felix Chong really knows what he's doing.

Blood Diamond is good but not great. Leo is very good. Worst part of it is that I felt I should be feeling more -- outrage or what have you. But I didn't, and that seemed wrong. So while it's a perfectly watchable movie, at least part of me didn't like it. Or I didn't like it in part. Whatever.
