This movie splits into three different and I did not see that coming to be honest.

'The Place Beyond the Pines' is a powerful drama, whose story encompasses themes of fractured father/son relationships, tough life-making decisions, and forgiveness. The film is so well acted, written and directed that there felt a great sense of realism. I was completely engrossed in this world and these character's lives. There are many stingingly honest moments, some of which reminded me of my own troubles. I found a personal connection through certain scenes that I have never felt while watching a film before. It was quite emotional, to say the least. I left the theater not only having seen a truly great movie, but also with a deeper sense of satisfaction.

Spring Breakers was good, but finally we have a really really good movie in the year 2013. An unusual structure, with basically three stories told separately. The best of the year so far for me, but as an update I have Disconnect close behind in 2nd.

The Place Beyond the Pines

Amazing film. After 2010s Blue Valentine, Derek Cianfrance again partners with Ryan Gosling on a film about the workings of the family unit, but this time he focuses on fathers in particular. The film is split into three interrelated storylines, each one so well done and excellently developed that we almost get 3 (great) films at once. At a lengthy 2hrs. 20 minutes, The Place Beyond Pines packs a powerful punch thanks the involving story, perfect performances from the cast, and the flawless direction from Cianfrance. He was somehow able to catch every actor at their absolute best and most realistic moment on camera; the performances are all stunning. Ryan Gosling, Bradley Cooper, and Dane Dehaan are electric, and Eva Mendes, Rose Byrne, Ray Liotta, Ben Mendelsohn round out a stunning supp...

The Place Beyond the Pines review

An epic in its own right, just spotless on all accounts. This will have an impact for fathers (as myself who just became one a year ago), kids who remember/have their old man and enjoy a brilliant picture with countless lessons to pick-up from. It is impossible not to get moved from the three stories. The movie is about Luke Glanton (Ryan Gosling), a motorcycle stuntman earning minimum wage; former ex-girlfriend Romina (Eva Mendes) and a brave cop namely Avery Cross (Bradley Cooper). Luke finds out he has a son from his former lover. He asks his friend Robin (Ben Mendelsohn) for more money to take care of his son. After-which, he mentions to Luke that he used to be a bank robber. Luke was imprisoned because of assault. Avery is in pursuit of Luke and becomes hospitalized. Peter De...

A song of light and darkness.

The title of this review may seem somewhat implausible and overbearing to some, but when I think of the first time I watched The Place Beyond the Pines this year, I feel a connection.
This is one of those movies that reminds me why I love going to the cinema, why a movie can be more than entertainment once in a while.

The actors absolutely give themselves to their roles; even more minor characters like the ones of Eva Mendes and Ben Mendelsohn pull off such huge performances. A way too see it may be: they're all in a perfectly functioning clockwork. Each handle moves to every shed of a tear, every hour strikes at a sudden revelation. Every peak in the story is a perfect hit.

Derek Cianfrance's Blue Valentine was already a great piece bearing the image of marriage. It pondered over ...

This movie looks really good.  I really enjoyed the directors last feature Blue Valentine, and hope that this one will be even better.
