The Town (Review)

Ben Affleck is one smooth criminal

0 Comments · Tuesday, September 14, 2010
Boston native Ben Affleck takes us into the city's capital of sorts for criminal activity, Charlestown, where a life of crime is a vocation. Co-writing, acting, directing ... there's not a job in 'The Town' that he can't do and do well. And there's not a weak performance in the entire cast, which isn't exactly surprising considering the collection of talent. Grade: A-.

Nicole Holofcener drops another deft character comedy

0 Comments · Wednesday, June 16, 2010
Writer/director Nicole Holofcener drops yet another urbane, talky, existentially searching comedy armed with the kind of character and emotional nuance Woody Allen lost years ago. Catherine Keener and Oliver Platt play a fortysomething married couple with an angsty teenage daughter and a flourishing furniture store in Manhattan who drift apart as their material possessions grow in number and lavishness. Grade: B-plus.
