An undercover cop and a mole in the police attempt to identify each other while infiltrating an Irish gang in South Boston. (IMDb) ( )
  DrLed | Nov 5, 2017 |
The police and a gang both have moles from each other, and both know it.

Exciting, funny (for a crime thriller), and with a surprisingly cool bad guy from Jack Nicholson. If I didn't know, I never would have guessed from watching it that this was a Scorsese film. Not that I don't like Scorsese (I love some of his movies, dislike others), just that this is totally unlike him.
