Kickstarter to digitally erase the rat from the end of The Departed

The Departed is a Martin Scorsese mob movie about a rat. It ends with a scene depicting an actual rat making its way across a precarious railing: a metaphor so breathtakingly hamfisted it ruins the entire movie. Adam Sacks, therefore, is raising money on Kickstarter to have the rat digitally removed from the movie by a professional effects editor. [via Kottke]
