Reviews

Thriller van Ben Afleck (Argo; The town) naar een boek van Dennis Lahene*. Affleck speelt de hoofdrol, naast Zoe Saldana, Elle Fanning, Chris Cooper en Brendan Gleeson. Tijdens de drooglegging in de jaren twintig van de 20e eeuw wordt kleine crimineel Joe Coughlin, van Ierse afkomst, ingelijfd bij een beruchte gangsterbende in Boston. Hij weet zich omhoog te werken tot een grote baas in de gangsterwereld. De recensenten geven 2 1/2-3 sterren. VPRO Cinema (vpro.nl): '(...) De clichés en tegelwijsheden vliegen even overvloedig rond als de kogels in dit misdaaddrama (...) Als acteur haalt Affleck het niveau van zijn sterke tegenspelers geen moment, maar regisseren kan hij: Live by Night ziet er gelikt uit en is van begin tot eind onderhoudend.'
