I gotta tell ya, it feels good to be right. I took a lot of flack a few years back when I absolutely flipped over Ben Affleck’s directorial debut, “Gone Baby Gone,” ranting wildly to anyone who would listen that it marked the emergence of a born filmmaker who would probably continue to knock us through a loop with each new movie.

People humored me, as they often do, but they paid no heed. Now “Gone Baby Gone” has grown in popularity, and Affleck has come out with his sophomore effort, “The Town,” to finally silence the last of the knee-jerk critics who couldn’t wrap their minds around the idea that an uneven actor like Affleck could be a truly visionary filmmaker.
