Gone Baby Gone (2007)
Dir - Ben Affleck
Heard good things about this for a while and finally decided to bump it up in my Netflix queue. This is a great film and Ben proves that he really knows what he's doing as a director, not to mention his brother gives quite a performance. After a few minutes I kept thinking this reminded me of Mystic River a bit and then I find out the source novel for both films were written by the same guy. Go figure.
I know there are a lot of conflicting opinions about end of this film and I'm still not 100% on where I fall. I see both sides and don't want to go into it here but it's a film and problem without a real black-and-white solution. I like that a lot.
