  • It's a beast of a movie, an emotional roller coaster that threatens to go off the rails, and does. But Cianfrance, working from a scrappy script he wrote with Ben Coccio and Darius Marder, takes you on a hell of a ride. show more

  • One-third wonderful, The Place Beyond the Pines weakens as it unfolds for lack of what makes the early part so good. show more

  • This is a story about legacy, the sins of the father, the restlessness in our souls. It's powerful, it's bold, it hits you hard. show more

    This was like three movies strung together and at 140 minutes seemed, at times, to go on forever. I actually thought it was over and then it went on for another 15 years in the story. Worth a look.

    I discovered that I\'m not a Ryan Gosling fan. Same character he played in \"The Driver\". Some high points but mostly low points.
