All ‘Saints’ day
Ten years after “Boondock Saints,’’ the film detailing the rise and fall of bartender-turned-scriptwriter Troy Duffy, still has many, many fans. A screening this week of the sequel, “Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day,’’ attracted twice as many people as could be accommodated at the Loews Boston Common. (In the end, more than 300 people had to be turned away.) Duffy told the crowd he had resisted seeing the new film because “I wanted to watch this in my home with a bunch of ‘Boondock’ fans.’’ And afterward when the audience reacted enthusiastically? “My baby’s got 10 fingers and 10 toes. I found that out tonight,’’ Duffy said. Given the filmmaker’s unpredictable nature, we had high hopes for the after-party at the Paradise, but because much of the audience was under 21, they couldn’t get in, so it was a subdued affair. Billy Connolly left early, while Duffy, Sean Patrick Flanery, Norman Reedus, and Bob Marley mingled with fans and signed autographs.
