I was just looking up some songs from the movie and downloading... if anybody gives a shit, the song at the beginning is by Dropkick Murphys - I'm shipping up to Boston. Great song!

Yeah I DL'd it too. I don't see why they haven't released a soundtrack album. There's some good tracks to be found. Splice it up with some of the film's dialogue and you got a hit. If Capote can release a CD Soundtrack, so can The Departed.

My initial reaction after one viewing -- somewhat disappointed.  The scenes with the female therapist were boring, and seemingly endless.  I don't buy Di Caprio as a hard-ass (the scene in which he beats up two guys in a corner store was laughable).  High-concept thrillers just aren't Scorsese's forte -- as Cape Fear demonstrated.  When you strip this film of its stylistic flourishes, it reminded me of a late 80's Touchstone high concept action film.

On the other hand, Damon did a good job of playing a cipher.  The opening ten minutes were great, showing Damon making his way up and through the ranks of the police.  I enjoyed Nicholson's over the top showboating.

I could have sworn that I heard Mick Jagger more than once.

Too, I was under the impression that the Stones didn't allow people to include their songs on soundtracks since the great RS songs in Wes Anderson films are never included.

I'm guessing "Gimme Shelter" was too pricey to go on the cd.  Too bad.
Now you're in the *spoiler* place.

It doesn't make sense to me. A song like "I Am Waiting" wasn't a single or anything, yet it wasn't included on the Rushmore soundtrack. It actually benefited the Stones by me because I started buying the albums with the songs on them.

i think you can include the stones on your sntks,  its probably just expensive as shit.
Christopher Nolan's directive was clear to everyone in the cast and crew: Use CGI only as a last resort.

No, it's that they are extremely protective of their material and very rarely lease them out. I think the whole Verve lawsuit had to do with it.

Also, it's a little pointless to put a song like Gimme Shelter on a soundtrack.  Everyone's heard that song and probably has like four or five copies of it from different sources so soundtracks often limit themselves to shit that not everyone will already own.
