TUES­DAY

THE TOWN

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - WEEK IN MOVIES -

9.30PM, GO! ★★★★

Ben Af­fleck stars as the leader of a smash ’n’ grab gang who be­gins a re­la­tion­ship with a woman held hostage dur­ing a heist. But if you as­sume The Town is go­ing to sud­denly shrivel down into a reg­u­lar doomed love-story sce­nario, you’re mis­taken. The wild card here is Af­fleck’s ex­em­plary work as di­rec­tor and co-writer, which can be likened to Martin Scors­ese’s award-win­ning ef­forts on The De­parted.
