Peter King again today:
f. I can hear it now: How can you praise Saving Private Ryan, with as gruesome a
first half-hour as you could ever see in a movie, and rip The Departed for being
too violent? Interesting question. My answer's simple. Ryan is a war movie, and
you know going in that if D-Day is going to be realistically portrayed there's
going to be some killing. But it was not gratuitous violence, which I felt
riddled The Departed.
ITS A MOVIE ABOUT ORGANIZED CRIME!!!!!!!!!!!! Last time I checked, organized crime was brutal.
Peter stick to football. I urge you.
Oh and my readers should go see Zodiac. Great movie.
