MARTIN Scorsese quite rightly gained an Oscar for this violent story set on his old stalking ground of the mean streets of Boston.

Scorsese's recognition at the Academy Awards was long overdue. He is, after all, one of Hollywood's leading directors.

The story is of an undercover police officer working with the mob while the mob has one of their own working as a police officer.

Those roles are played by Matt Damon and Leonardo DiCaprio, but it is Jack Nicholson as mob boss who, as usual, steals the scenes.
