Cloned From: 

You should definitely check out Babel, Science of Sleep, Volver and, above all, the breathtakingly brilliant The Prestige. Some of those might even knock off The Departed from its current pole position.

I definitely want to see the first three films you mention. As for The Prestige, I've actually already seen it. I personally would not describe it as breathtakingly brilliant, nor would I call it better than The Departed, but I do think it's a really terrific film.

I just recently saw The Fountain (today, in fact). What's your opinion on it? Or have you not seen it?

This is a list of every 2006 movie I've seen, so yeah, I haven't seen it. Despite my love for Aronofsky, I avoided it because the reviews weren't great. Perhaps I should check it out, though.

I would strongly advise seeing it. Many view it as his best work, and refer to the entire film itself as art.
