The Departed has X’s

Martin Scorsese

A film critic from the Miami Herald pointed out something interesting about Martin Scosese’s The Departed. Apparently, Scorsese scattered X’s, symbolizing impending doom, throughout the movie paying tribute to Howard Hawk’s Scarface. The guy has a lot more screen shots here.

This has inspired me to pay tribute to Fight Club if I ever meet Paris Hilton. Remember the part where Tyler Durden says, “I want you to hit me as hard as you can.” Well Paris, wish granted.

Brings to mind the symbolic use of oranges in The Godfather.
