Excerpt: PQ: The film arrives in a 2.40:1 HD AVC encoded transfer and is top notch. All of the colors are well saturated and come across clean and clear. There are very strong greens here in the scenes out in the woods. Stubble is very noticeable on a lot of the faces and the blond highlights in Gosling's hair stood out strong. Everything looks sharp and well defined here. I noticed only small traces of grain in some of the early night scenes, but it never became too distracting.
Summary: The Place Beyond the Pines is an ambitious and riveting crime drama. One of the best films of the year. Filmmaking doesn't get much better than this. I was hooked from the first frame, with Ryan Gosling as Luke Glanton, a carnival motorcycle stunt rider, covered with tattoos and flicking a switchblade. Blue Valentine director, Derek Cianfrance does a fantastic job, and I'm interested to see his other work. The cinematography and music is stunning.
Conclusion: Ryan Gosling Gives Another Brilliant Performance and so does bradley cooper. TPBTP is Brilliant but scenery and powerful acting with a moving, gripping plot makes Place Beyond the Pines the best movie I have seen in a while.
