So I would agree that this movie is good. Ben Affleck does show off his directing skills in Live By Night, but I'm not sure what he wanted out of this movie, he just had too much going on. This movie is about the 1920 prohibition era. Now of course he had to include a love story, but then he had to include two love stories. Then he had to bring the KKK into it. Then Jesus.
There where way too many plots going on in this movie (See above). By the middle of the movie, you didn't even remember the reason Ben Affleck's character was becoming a gangster, just for them to bring the end of the movie with the close of what happened at the beginning of the movie. Confusing? Yea, then maybe don't go and see this movie.
I think, if your just looking for a flick to go see about the 1920s prohibition gangster, then see this movie. Make sure you purchase a bucket of popcorn to help you get through the movie during the slower parts.

What would I have changed? (Spoilers)
The issue with this movie was that it was kinda slow. I mean, yes it had it's moments where it had a great car chase scene when they were robbing the bank, but other than that it dragged.
