Over the past few years Casey Affleck has become a favorite of mine. With his scene-stealing work in THE ASSASSINATION OF JESSE JAMES BY THE COWARD ROBERT FORD as well as GONE BABY GONE, he has proven to be a formidable talent. This is especially evident in his latest feature, the intense drama OUT OF THE FURNACE directed by Scott Cooper (CRAZY HEART). As Christian Bale’s troubled brother,...
