Re: “The Town

A serious attempt at trying to make a crime film in a world of hyper-real Hollywood action films. Affleck has met the challenge with a slow steady film about conflicted characters caught up in a desperate situation. It feels more like an old Hollywood noir or 60s French crime drama than anything else, but like GONE BABY GONE, uniquely his own. The reason people keep comparing it to Eastwood films is that Eastwood is only other American director working in this territory. See it.
