Thoughtful human melodrama. Believable. See it.

When I saw the trailer, I thought "ok, maybe, looks like one to see." I had the chance to watch "The Place Beyond the Pines" last night; and I'm glad I did! Very interesting story, with believable characters, in believable situations! Actions can have consequences, either good or bad, and it can affect others, now or later. I want to talk about this in more detail - but don't want to spoil anything to those deciding weather to see this film. So, I'll leave it to that. I went to a smaller cinema in a smaller auditorium to see it; and wow, it was filled with people!

Long Drawn Out

There was just too much content to cover in the course of a movie. The movie covers 18 years with the result that characters and situations could not be fully developed. I just felt there was so much more to the story and that it just didn't get told.

I went to this move with great expectations but certainly was NOT rewarded. Ryan Gosling is no Ed Norton and Bradly Cooper is lame. The real acting came from Eva Mendes, Ray Liotta who had way to small of a roll and keep an eye on Dane DeHaan - he is a true up and coming young star. The move had no redeeming factors unless you believe, most American men are booze smoking drug addicted psychos who, either wind up dead or deadbeats - raise kids that do nothing but booze - smoke and oh yes beat each other up. WOW - I guess that's the NEW NORMAL we are expected to 'believe!?' That's UNBELIEVABLE!

I went to this movie because I am a Ryan Gosling fan. I like the type of movie too. The whole project was well executed. All of the actors were superb.
