Lately, I've had both Claire, the bank manager, whose bank was robbed, and Doug MacRay, a lifelong Charlestown resident who was the leader of the four-man Townie gang who'd robbed Claire's bank, wearing Hallowe'en masks and ninja outfits, forced her to open the নিরাপদ at gunpoint, and then took her as a hostage দ্বারা driving her to a সৈকত in Boston after blindfolding her to make sure she didn't see anything, and then forcing her to walk on the সৈকত until she felt the water on her toes, on my mind a great deal, for some reason. They let her go, physically unharmed, although rather traumatized by...

At one point, during Doug MacRay's interview in the interrogation room, where Ofcr. Dino Ciampa was also present, and Dino says to Doug after mentioning that he knew his father and heard what happened to him, Dino says, casually, to Doug "Maybe আপনি can make a সরানো to change all that when আপনি get up there." Doug then gets angry and says "Let me ask আপনি something. What do আপনি say about a person that you've grown up with, confided your life stories to that person, etc., and they turn around and use it against you? আপনি call him a rat, right? আপনি know what I call him? I call him Dino the dago."...

There are some important differences between Claire Keesey and Krista Coughlin. Claire, a suburban yuppie and bank manager who had recently moved into Charlestown, had not only completed high school, but she had a college education and a decent job as a bank manager, where she made a decent amount of money, and therefore had many আরো choices as to what she could do with her life. The fact that Claire's bank was robbed দ্বারা Doug MacRay and his men, all in masks, who forced her to open the নিরাপদ at gunpoint and then took her as a hostage, however briefly, was not her fault. I did sympathize with...

I’m pretty much a lonely voice in the wilderness here, as I feel differently about The Town than many, if not most people do. For starters, I read Chuck Hogan’s novel, Prince of Thieves, on which The Town was based, and I liked the book far better than the movie, which seemed like an extended made-for-TV and very cartoon-like film.
