It was worth seeing. It was a little different side of Ryan Gosling than I've seen in other movies.

Beautifully Sad

The movie was perfectly pensive, introspective, and so sad. It shows different perspectives on how our choices shape us, and the next generation. The acting was incredible, especially Brady Cooper's performance. Wow. Not a need-to-see-at-the-theatre movie, but the music at that volume/proximity was moving. Overall a beautifully sad film.

Expectation was too high

Nothing special about this movie, the relatively high rating on IMDB is just because the ending was somewhat unpredictable. But the story line is too fragmented. You have to follow different roles and learn their stories and in the end you don't know you are on who's side of the story. Not much to be remembered of.

The Place Beyond the Pines

A beautiful, deep and haunting film. The complexities of life, choices, consequences, and the impact of fatherhood resonate deeply. Not fast food film, but a complex meal to digest.

Brilliant. Moving.

TPBTP is a haunting display of how the sins of a father are visited upon their sons. This movie is not paced like your typical Hollywood whiz-bang film, it is a thoughtful, sensitive portrayal of real life characters coping inside each of their lives. I highly recommend seeing this as an alternative to a barely 3D old dinosaur movie.
