The Place Beyond The Pines

Just saw an early screening in BR

Damn. It was intense and very interesting.

I really enjoyed it

I'm sure it will be. I don't see how it won't be.

It was something for the LA film festival that we got to go to an early screening.

The movies to pick from were Pines and 42. I think I made the right decision, although I want to see 42 as well.

re: The Place Beyond The Pines
This was my spoiler free review of it after seeing it Saturday.

quote:

It's just long. And very broken up. It's practically 3 movies. The first focuses on one character, the second on another, and finally the third on how those two characters' lives have intermingled.

Pretty good job acting by Gosling and Cooper and some great shots throughout the movie.

Though very tense, it is not an action movie. It is a drama.

One of those flicks that has me thinking even the day after. It is an interesting look at the American Dream, the arrogance and humility of men, the change a child makes in a man's life, what a father is, the inability to escape our fathers' sins, and ambition.

I will say I did not care for the ending, though, and I did find myself bored at times. Overall, though, a good flick worth watching.

Pretty spot on

I liked that it was three pieces that were all chain reactions or interlinked. One thing lead directly to another and without it, the chain reaction completely stopped. Idk, I really enjoyed it.

I found Bradley Cooper's son to be extremely annoying and easily the worst part of the film

He almost ruins the film. Seriously.

The whole tone and feel of the movie changed with this Fonz type character

Finally got around to seeing the movie and I really liked it. After hearing that the 3rd portion of the movie is by far the weakest point, and preparing myself for it, it actually didn't bother me.

Good acting all-around and some really beautiful images/sequences such as the opening shot of the movie.
