    Very good movie. I watched with my ex-girlfriend three days before we broke up.

    So the title soon became literal?

    A fine film indeed, capturing Boston and the spirit of Lehane's novel very well. Before I saw it, I wasn't sold on Casey Affleck, feeling his casting was nothing but nepotism. I was wrong. He's got the chops.

    Real soon. It all started with an disagreement as to who did the right thing in the movie and ended three days later on July 4 when I told her to "fuck off and lose my number."

    Good movie, though.

    Oh yes he does.

    He was masterful in The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford.

    That is one solid breakup.
  8. The wife and I disagreed about the ending. We were on opposite sides of who did the right thing.
    And second C.A. was great in this and Assassination. Saw those back-to-back. Quite a contrast.

    He was the best part of the movie. I think Pitt is great in pretty much everything, but he didn't do it for me in this one. Affleck took it to another level. I started to watch Gone Baby Gone but left 15 minutes into it. I'll probably rent it to finish it.

    Casey was great in Chasing Amy, too.

    just watching again. greatness of the storytelling is we're SUPPOSED to be conflicted about what was the best choice for the girl.

    at the end, when the mom leaves her with casey to go out, it's hard not to think he's wondering if he did the right thing, too.
