The Departed's characters are marked for death, literally, with “X”s. … In fact, the only major character who doesn’t get marked is Sgt. Dignam (Mark Wahlberg), and guess who makes it through the entire movie alive? It’s the only one with a hip-hop album. But maybe this is just a huge coincidence, or the result of a deranged porn-obsessed set designer? Nope: Scorsese, being a huge film nerd, was intentionally paying tribute to Howard Hawks’ 1932 version of Scarface, where an X appeared every time a murder was about to be committed.
medusa, trying to turn you to stone, but you accidentally called her “melissa” when you first walked in and now you’re too embarrassed to look at her. “it’s alright” she keeps saying “i get it all the time” but you still won’t look. u don’t even remember the stone thing until later
