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.

It's a slow-burner that burns so slowly its wick completely fizzles out. Full Review

USA Today
A riveting crime thriller, it's also a multi-generational familial saga that approaches Greek tragedy. Full Review

The New Yorker
Cool, violent, a cigarette dangling from his mouth, Gosling reprises his inexorable-loner routine from “Drive.” Cianfrance and the screenwriters Ben Coccio and Darius Marder wrote thirty-seven drafts of the script, but gave him almost nothing to say. He rides, he smokes, he knocks over banks, he loves his baby, and that’s it. Full Review
David Edelstein
New York Magazine (Vulture)
The segments are essentially monodramas, so sketchily written that the big moments feel less like recognizable human behavior than recognizable screenwriter overreaching. Full Review
David Rooney
The Hollywood Reporter
Cianfrance generally shows again that he knows how to build immersive characterizations with his actors. And while this sorrowful triptych is uneven and perhaps overly ambitious, the director displays a cool mastery of atmospherics and tone. Full Review
