The United States of Film: Massachusetts

Gone, Baby, Gone

“When people think of Massachusetts’ burgeoning movie industry, they probably think first of gritty, unforgiving gangster films, of severe accents, of reluctant geniuses, of Ben Affleck. But the Bay State has offered more to cinema than just chronicles of working class stiffs, real crime allegory, or some combination of Matt and Ben: this is the Cradle of Liberty we’re talking about here, a place that’s defined as much by its best contributions to America’s foundation as its most shameful historical transgressions.” (Via Paste Magazine.)
