The Place Beyond the Pines

  • Excerpt: 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.

The Place Beyond the Pines review

  • Excerpt: 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.

A song of light and darkness.

  • Excerpt: 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.

Review: The Place Beyond the Pines

  • Excerpt: The Place Beyond the Pines stars Ryan Gosling and Bradley Cooper, two gifted and dynamic actors who have been doing nothing lately but impressing me by their performances. If you thought Bradley Cooper was great in Silver Linings Playbook, wait until you see him here as a hopeful cop slowly being eaten away by guilt. It takes strength and guts to pull off this role, and Cooper nails it.

  • Summary: '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.

  • Summary: 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.

  • Summary: Filmen är nog som mest effektiv om man inte vet något om handlingen i förväg, vilket var situationen för undertecknad. Filmen tar en mycket oväntad vändning för att sedan ytterligare ändra riktning. Blandar uppfinningsrikt olika genrer ( drama, crime och thriller ) till ett mycket effektivt slutresultat. Rekommenderas varmt!
