Live By Night (Blu-ray)(BD)
Taking fatherly advice is not in Joe Coughlin’s nature. Instead, the WWI vet is a selfproclaimed anti-establishment outlaw, despite being the son of the Boston Police Deputy Superintendent. Joe’s not all bad, though; in fact, he’s not really bad enough for the life he’s chosen. Unlike the gangsters he refuses to work for, he has a sense of justice and an open heart, and both work against him, leaving him vulnerable time and again—in business and in love. Driven by a need to right the wrongs committed against him and those close to him, Joe heads down a risky path that goes against his upbringing and his own moral code. Leaving the cold Boston winter behind, he and his reckless crew turn up the heat in Tampa. And while revenge may taste sweeter than the molasses that infuses every drop of illegal rum he runs, Joe will learn that it comes at a price.]]>

I enjoyed the attention to period detail, and enjoyed the movie. I do feel that they tried to cover too much ground in the rambling plot.
Part of it (the shootout near the Ritz hotel building site) was filmed in nearby El Dorado Park, and I rode by the set on my bike a year or so ago.
In preparation for the release of the movie, I read the book. The movie was superior to the book, in that the more fantastic elements in the book were omitted in the movie.
The only minor complaint is that there are so many characters you have to really keep track of who is who and what is happening with them.
It was an interesting take of a gangster with morality in regard to what he did on the one hand and yet could be ruthless when he needed to be.
Very interesting film.
- Story: Ok its not American Gangster or Scarface, and it is a little rushed in the beginning as far as a "from the bottom to the top" progression but it does keep you engauged thoughout without feeling like its too fake.
-Cinematography: Truely excellent! Think Lord of War or The Aviator. Noir and authentic timepiece everything. Multiple running angles an all like the Revenant.
-Sound an music: Pretty decent, but the music and effects drown out the spoken audio somewhat. Had to watch with sub's 1st time, especially when foreign accents were used. But nice symphonic soundtrack that works.
-Replayability: I've seen it 4 times still love it. Doesn't have that "once you know what's happening it's old the second time feel.
I've read 7 reviews on 3 sites, can't say I've heard one good argument for the shade, other than they just didn' like Ben Affleck. They should see The Town. Bought it on a whim for a good price and as someone who has seen 8,500 + movies it's a keeper!
Needless to say, I LOVED IT.
Also, there wasn't nearly as much sex in it as the previews made it seem like—which I liked—because GOOD LORD movies and TV are oversexualized these days. SHEESH.

Once more Ben Affleck does not disappoint.
I want more Affleck directed films, more Batman with Affleck and more Accountant too.Read more
