The Town

Ben Affleck made a smart move when he decided to start directing films. He had made some bad career moves as an actor and was fizzling out. With his 2007 directorial debut “Gone Baby Gone,” he proved he had chops — and that they weren’t in acting. He’s a great director. With “The Town,” his 2010 heist film, he again shows he knows how to write and direct a great film, and can still act as long as he’s in the right material.
