  • ‘Town’ has something for everyone

    ERIC HARRIS, Film Review

    “The Town,” based on the very enjoyable novel “Prince of Thieves” by Chuck Hogan, is a film about Boston. More specifically, it’s about a part of Boston called Charlestown. Much like “Mystic River” and “Gone Baby Gone” the city itself is a character. Ben Affleck (who co-writes, directs, and stars) has done a fine job of incorporating the city into the film. I found his ability to place the viewer into a scene much more impressive, though.
