By the way, I went and saw The Departed last night (it's based on Infernal Affairs, if any of you haven't been paying attention) and it was pretty damned awesome. Has anyone else seen it? How do you think it stacks up to the source material?

I thought it was awesome, did you mean "Internal Affairs"or actually"INFERNAL affairs"?

The original translation is Infernal Affairs.

I saw The Departed as well and I am a huuuuge fan of the original so I am pretty up tight about the remake. It was ok but Jack Nicholsons part was far too padded out and it detracted from the main story. The fact that they both slept with the same woman was abit lame too....Plus Andy Lau and Tony Lueng are way cooler than the american counter parts.Told you I was up tight..sorry

Understandable complaints. I didn't think some of the character combinations/interpretations worked, but a lot of the content I felt was either spot-on or Scorcese-ized in really interesting ways. Still, ya gotta admit, it's certainly the best Asian film interpretation yet.
