The Place Beyond the Pines

This is a beautiful portrayal of a father and his son. Without spoiling anything, this is a three part epic that follows three people that are all tied together in some way, shape or form. Derek Cianfrance directs this gritty dramatic tension that keeps you enthralled from beginning to end. The feel of these movie is unlike any other and, from his previous work Blue Valentine, he has his own set style. The acting is top notch. Ryan Gosling and Bradley Cooper kill it and I would be very shocked if they didn't get nominated for an oscar along with Derek. The characters are portrayed to the best of the actors abilities and then some. The cinematography was beautiful and sometimes haunting. Not in the horror sense, but in a way to where the tension gets under your skin because of the progressive storyline. It is edited very well and for a two and a half hour long film kit keeps you intrigued. I really enjoyed this movie. This is a great look at relationships that that fathers have with their sons. This is one of the best movies of the year so far. Watch out because this will be a strong force for next years Oscars. Go see it. 10/10
