Movie Review: Gone Baby Gone

Post by johno » Sun Oct 21, 2007 3:18 am

Don't hate because Ben Affleck directed this movie. It's a sure Oscar contender, and for good reason. Gripping plot, with plenty of twists to keep you guessing. Violence & dread. Great acting. And the movie poses a good moral dilemma.

No dinosaurs, car chases, huge boobs or atomic explosions. But still a great movie.

Another fucking movie set in South Boston. There are more interesting places in the world for fuck's sake.

I've never seen S. Boston look like this...some of the no-name actors made for scenes from an urban Deliverance.

Also, Casey Affleck is totally convincing in his role. So is Ed Harris and Amy Ryan, who plays the missing girl's crackhead Mom.

Was going to see it yesterday, looks like a good movie. We were running behind and watched Rendition instead - also very good.

Saw Rendition over the weekend. I agree it was very good-very entertaining and suspenseful.

Well,the book it's based is by Dennis LeHane ("Mystic River"), and the book is all about the Boston underground...so it's pretty much required.
