The Departed
2006
To take down Boston's Irish Mafia, the police send in one of their own to infiltrate the underworld, not realizing the syndicate has done the same thing. While an undercover cop curries favor with a kingpin, a criminal rises through the police ranks.

Scott Hardie: “It ruled.”

Scorsese's adaptation of the Chinese Infernal Affairs keeps its dense plot intact but transplants the action to the Irish mob in Boston. What, would the Italian mob in New York have felt too familiar? This is damn good, riveting throughout.
