The Departed

| | Comments (0)
I finally saw The Departed tonight. It was very good, but it had some flaws in it that bothered me.

So the guy gives Bill the wrong address. So what? The right address would have been on the same block and side of the street as the wrong one, and they first see Bill leaning over a dead body in the middle of the street. So Bill showed up at the wrong place, sees the body, and comes over to the right place. Big deal.

Why didn't Bill let his friend from the academy take Sullivan? For that matter, why didn't he blow the whistle while he was still inside the department, instead of running?

The conversation on the CD was recorded in an adult theater, and the voices are crystal clear. so, where's the background sex noises from the film playing at the time?
