  • Editorial Reviews

    "The place beyond the pines" is an idiomatic translation of the Native American word Schenectady, which is the tucked-away upstate New York setting where the triptych dramas of The Place Beyond the Pines unfold with deft, emotional grace. This second feature from director Derek Cianfrance is an ambitious reach into tragedy, honor, and responsibility experienced between fathers and sons. Even though the result falls a little short of his grasp, there's no denying the beauty and passion in the story he tells with such measured artistry and eloquent attention to process and form. Unlike his impressive debut, Blue Valentine, which hewed to a structure that lurched forward and back in observing the beginning and ending of a marriage, Pines follows a linear chronology in its three acts, but it is similarly jarring in the way the narrative plays out so unexpectedly. Act one follows Luke (Ryan Gosling), a motorcycle daredevil on the carnival circuit who discovers that the fling he had last year with Romina (Eva Mendes) left him with a son. The shell of tattoos and leather jacket Luke hides under can't disguise the effect this new reality has on him. He decides to stick around and try to weasel into the role of being a father, turning to bank robbery as a means of providing the support he believes he must. The story's second act abruptly leaves Luke behind, shifting the focus to Avery (Bradley Cooper), a rookie local cop with a law degree who truly wants to do good, even though police corruption is endemic even on the nice streets he patrols in his placid place beyond the pines. Avery also has a new son, but as much as Luke yearned to shower love on his boy, circumstances have led Avery to shut down and deny any feeling toward his child or his wife (Rose Byrne). Part three takes place 15 years later, when fate brings the two boys together and the legacy left to them by their fathers comes home to roost in an equally unpredictable fashion. AJ and Jason (Emory Cohen and Dane DeHaan) are thrown together in the unpleasantly realistic dance of teenage angst as Avery and Luke's sons. They are at first unaware of their fathers' association until the inevitable revelation and partial role reversal that winds the movie down. All the performances are terrific and Ryan Gosling and Bradley Cooper are at the top of their game, though their interaction is limited to one brief sequence. Gosling feels a little typecast as the moody, stone-faced, quick-tempered guy we've seen him play before, but his entire body is engaged in the way he snaps from calm to rage at the emotions brewing inside. Cooper is restrained and playing somewhat against type as a man who should be the hero, even though he's got more villain in him than the movie outright admits. Cianfrance displays an enormous advance as an auteur. The Place Beyond the Pines may not be the fully realized work he intended, but it is an absorbing and often deeply moving exercise in family dynamics and destinies that are never certain. --Ted Fry

    This movie had me from beginning to end. I loved the depth of all the underlying themes that intersected throughout the movie. The significance of a man's role in the family and in a marriage is heavily explored from start to finish. All the main characters appeared very raw and believable. The casting was expert and the complexities of each character were portrayed very subtly without the need for much dialogue, which is always the genius of a well-written movie. The sins of our fathers was a reoccuring theme throughout, and you can feel the inadequacies, hopes, and fears of each character as time unfolds. What gets me the most is witnessing the sweetness and kindness behind each character despite their depravity or past mistakes. This is a very moving story of humanity. You can't help but empathize with each character.

    Stunning. Amazing. Beautiful. Powerful. Genuinely Effective. That my friends is what can be said about The Place Beyond the Pines. I had been hearing very good things about this movie for a long time and today I finally got to watch it. My oh my what a movie. I have yet to see Man of Steel, American Hustle, or any other movie besides 42 that has really impressed me. But this is already one of the best films of 2013. Ryan Gosling took a big leap from his lackluster performance in Gangster Squad and gave a strong standout performance as Luke Glanton. Supporting cast includes Eva Mendes as Romina, Bradley Cooper(he is getting better with each role as an actor) as Avery Cross, Ray Liotta as Delucca who also did a great job (there has to be a guy everyone loves to hate) and Dane Dehaan (who is also a great actor for his age) as Jason Glanton. The whole cast did a beyond superb job. The Place Beyond the Pines makes you forget that the people in it are just characters; you generally come to care about and understand each and every one of the characters in the movie. I had the same feeling I had watching Cloud Atlas; the connections are there, the story is pretty self explanatory but you have to pay close attention to every detail. The Place Beyond the Pines itself has every emotion a movie like this should have: happiness, tragedy, understanding, etc. You can expect the unexpected with The Place Beyond the Pines. Stellar Cast, Powerful story line, and just an Extraordinary movie.

    5.0 out of 5 stars The first exceptional film of 2013 April 5, 2013
    Luke Glanton (Ryan Gosling) has a good thing going with a traveling carnival. He's got a pocketful of fame thanks to his motorcycle stuntman status and makes just enough money to get by. He meets up with Romina (Eva Mendes), an old fling, in Schenectady, New York and finds out that their one night together resulted in a little one year old boy named Jason. Luke quits the carnival and intends to provide for his son, but Romina has moved on and is currently in a relationship with Kofi (Mahershala Ali). Luke crosses paths with a mechanic named Robin (Ben Mendelsohn) who talks Luke into robbing a few banks to get some quick cash to support his newfound fatherhood. But Luke gets addicted to the thrill of the hunt and the money and gets overzealous, which attracts the New York police department and rookie cop Avery Cross (Bradley Cooper) in particular.

    Director Derek Cianfrance last worked with Ryan Gosling in "Blue Valentine" from 2010, which got a noticeable amount of attention due to its original NC-17 rating. Upon realizing that it really wasn't all that graphic, the MPAA gave the film an R-rating upon review. None of that controversy is attached to "The Place Beyond the Pines," but it certainly earns its R-rating with its constant use of vulgarity, a few really violent sequences, and the use of drugs and alcohol with an underage crowd.

    The film opens with the camera following a tattooed from head to toe Ryan Gosling in a red and black bomber jacket at a carnival before he enters a steel cage ball along with his motorcycle on full throttle and his two "heartthrobs." Take note of this sequence along with how similar a sequence near the end of the film is shot as it follows another character.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent...What you'd expect from Derek Cianfrance August 16, 2013
    By RBock
    Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
    I didn't understand the negative reviews of this movie. The performance at the box office was underwhelming for a Ryan Gosling/Bradley Cooper film, but this wasn't a big blockbuster type movie. It was beautifully written, beautifully shot, and wonderfully acted--everyone churned out a fabulous performance...and what about Ben Mendelsohn! I want to see him in more American movies. I like his face.

    I really didn't get the criticism of Eva Mendez' performance in this film--she was great. Her acting was very subtle, as I think that it's the smallest nuances that stand out in a Derek Cianfrance film. This story is awesome--it doesn't go AT ALL where you expect it to. It's such a breath of fresh air from all the calculated films in Hollywood nowadays, those films that are written, directed, and acted with dollar signs in mind. This was art. And it just happened to be entertaining as well.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Does fate order our lives? August 13, 2013
    The Greeks believed that fate controlled us. Oedipus tried to escape his fate by taking certain actions, which, ironically, led him directly into the path of his ordained fate. My initial viewing led me to think fate was the controlling factor here, too. But not so. The characters try to change their fates, their futures and some are successful.

    Why the title? "The Place Beyond the Pines"-- what's there that gives the film its title? A friend, a grounding, a source of history, some explanations, each an essential element of the story of Luke (Ryan Gosling, a superb actor), a daredevil carnival motorcycle rider, and his son Jason. The story covers about seventeen years in a hop-skip fashion and comes in three distinct acts: Luke the bank robber, Avery the police officer who changes Luke's future, and their two sons who intersect as teenagers.

    (One note at this point: Gosling always plays the dangerous bad boys, Cooper the wide-eyed heroic types. Wouldn't it be interesting to see a role reversal here? Can Gosling lose his edginess to play the solid, stand-up guy? Can Cooper disguise those innocent eyes to be edgy?)

    The film comes in three acts: Gosling as an irresponsible man, father, bank robber; Cooper as hero by quirk--or intention--of fate, momentary dirty cop, politician; and the intersection of their two sons 15 years later to move the fates forward.

    The most interesting point of the film is seeing how Avery Cross's son turns out--and it's not pretty. What the viewer learns in Act Two is that Cross (Cooper) cannot look at his son after Act One (I am deliberately avoiding revealing important information). So he grows up neglected--and wow, what an obnoxious, malicious young man he is.
