The not-so-dearly `Departed' ending

The Oscar-nominated scriptwriter makes a strong case for the rat. (Beware of spoilers.)

***spoiler alert*** (not much of one, but I guess for the truly spoiler-sensitive it is)

Screenwriter William Monahan in the article you linked to:
"I tell ya, people would leave the theater feeling a lot different if it wasn't for that rat."

My reponse: Yep, that's true: I'd have left the theater feeling like the film hadn't just been cheapened. And I'd be liking it a whole lot more.

Not a rat scene fan,
