    You probably won't turn it off when it comes on cable. But the material needs to be bigger, more momentous, as well as more intimate.

    One of the film's final set pieces is so wonderfully staged that it reminds you what skill Affleck has with the camera. Next time, he should perhaps confine himself behind it.

    Live by Night is a solid, interesting but sprawling and often overwrought gangster picture.

    A footnote in the history of cinematic mob stories.

    Here, the outlaw-as-hero trick just doesn't work; we can't both sympathize with Coughlin's moral quandaries and thrill to his crimes.

    It sure looks great - it was lensed by Tarantino regular Robert Richardson - and its gangster-movie tropes are familiar, yet welcome.

    That speaks well of Affleck -- the screenwriter -- in demonstrating maturity by offering up more nuanced characters than we generally expect from the average gangster movie. Still, that maturity doesn't mitigate the shortcomings of the film's star.

    And while the story is sprawling, covering a decade, and filled with beautiful settings, costumes, and stars, it just never comes together to be the kind of epic crime drama it's emulating

    A focused and insightful character study, it's not. But reframed as a genre exercise, a pulpy throwback comic book... the film is an absorbing diversion.

    March 01, 2017

    You can practically feel it straining to become a classic of the genre but in the end, it feels more like Miller's Crossing cosplay than anything else.

    If Sad Affleck didn't already exist, Live By Night might've made the meme happen anyway.

    Live By Night is a far better film than it's been given credit for.
