More Info:
  • Richard Roeper

    The music, the cinematography, the acting choices, the daring plot leaps — not a single element is timid or safe...The Place Beyond the Pines earns every second of its 140-minute running time.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Rex Reed

    I think you’ll find it as fresh, original and breathlessly exciting as I did.

    New York Observer Full Review
  • Kevin Jagernauth

    A brilliant, towering picture, The Place Beyond The Pines is a cinematic accomplishment of extraordinary grace and insight.

    The Playlist Full Review
  • Steve Persall

    It's a story languorously told in three chapters, the first two in the late 1980s and the third 15 years later. Each could be a movie unto themselves. Together they prove Cianfrance to be an effectively unobtrusive storyteller, crafting without artifice what book critics would call a page turner.

    Tampa Bay Times Full Review
  • Eric Kohn

    That the movie succeeds both as a high-stakes crime thriller as well as a far quieter and empathetic study of angry, solitary men proves that Cianfrance has a penchant for bold storytelling and an eye for performances to carry it through.

    indieWIRE Full Review
  • Leah Churner

    The film is so velvety textured and dreamy, I would’ve stuck around for more. That is Cianfrance’s special talent.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Steven Rea

    This is a story about legacy, the sins of the father, the restlessness in our souls. It's powerful, it's bold, it hits you hard.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    It is a better, more fully felt and moving picture than "Blue Valentine."

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    A riveting crime thriller, it's also a multi-generational familial saga that approaches Greek tragedy.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Kyle Smith

    Don't let the quiet, indie stylings of The Place Beyond the Pines fool you. This is a big movie with a lot on its mind. Slowly, it unfolds into a kind of epic.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Marc Mohan

    Cianfrance is the real deal, and anyone who can persuade talented Hollywood stars to enact nonironic, intelligent, ambitious drama should be encouraged, especially when the result is something like this.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Tom Huddleston

    An enormously satisfying film: carefully observed and consistently compelling, it feels like an instant American classic, if a minor one.

    Time Out London Full Review
  • Mike Scott

    It's not a perfect film. There's still room for Cianfrance to grow as a storyteller. But it is entirely rewarding -- and I, for one, can't wait to see where he takes us next.

    New Orleans Times-Picayune Full Review
  • Olly Richards

    In trying to tell an enormous amount of story it can spread itself too thin and leave some strands feeling unfinished, but when it’s at its best, this is beautiful and bold filmmaking.

    Empire Full Review
  • Jamie Graham

    Gosling and Cooper use their star currency to power a slow-burn, heartsick drama. "Blue Valentine" director Cianfrance is a serious talent.

    Total Film Full Review
  • Calvin Wilson

    The acting is first-rate. Gosling masterfully fills in Luke’s motivational blanks, and Cooper nicely handles Avery’s evolution from idealist to manipulator.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    It's a beast of a movie, an emotional roller coaster that threatens to go off the rails, and does. But Cianfrance, working from a scrappy script he wrote with Ben Coccio and Darius Marder, takes you on a hell of a ride.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    The characters are interesting and capture our sympathy and, although there are things to criticize about the final forty-five minutes, it brings the saga to a conclusion. There's a lot to like about The Place Beyond the Pines even if it isn't the feel-good movie of the spring.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Nathan Rabin

    Few actors are as riveting doing absolutely nothing, and The Place Beyond The Pines perfectly typecasts Gosling as a noir staple: the decent but rudderless drifter driven to violent and desperate action.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Laremy Legel

    There is true beauty in the despair that pervades The Place Beyond the Pines, a film plotted out in triptych, a treatise on the moral compromises we all make to protect and provide for our loved ones. Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    The risk of telling three distinct-but-related stories is that all may not be of equal quality. That’s the case here, as the movie starts strong but gets progressively weaker, particularly in the third act.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Mary Pols

    The Place Beyond the Pines can’t be said to be anyone’s movie but Cianfrance’s. Structured as a triptych, the movie is novelistic, earnest and somewhat exhausting — an ambitious effort that tries to be many things. And it is definitely something: a sprawling, engaging study in fathers, sons and sins.

    Time Full Review
  • Betsy Sharkey

    The movie is intimate in its telling, sweeping in its issues and stumbles only occasionally.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Dana Stevens

    The movie’s soulful self-seriousness, like that of its liquid-eyed hero, can occasionally slip into self-parody. But this movie confirms my "Blue Valentine"-based suspicion that the 38-year-old Cianfrance is one to watch. He’s capable of coaxing tremendous moments from actors, he knows how to move a camera, and as this over-laden but never boring movie shows, he’s willing to operate from a place of risk.

    Slate Full Review
  • Joe Morgenstern

    One-third wonderful, The Place Beyond the Pines weakens as it unfolds for lack of what makes the early part so good.

    Wall Street Journal Full Review
  • A.O. Scott

    The three-part story, spread over nearly two and a half hours, represents a triumph of sympathetic imagination and a failure of narrative economy. But if, in the end, the film can’t quite sustain its epic vision, it does, along the way, achieve the density and momentum of a good novel.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • David Rooney

    Cianfrance generally shows again that he knows how to build immersive characterizations with his actors. And while this sorrowful triptych is uneven and perhaps overly ambitious, the director displays a cool mastery of atmospherics and tone.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Rick Groen

    Once again, Cianfrance handles the individual scenes with menacing aplomb but, once again, the whole is much less than the sum of its parts.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Ty Burr

    It’s very much a film about men, their yearnings and discontents, and about the way sins tumble down from one generation to the next. It’s a bank-robber movie, too, as well as a drama about the pressures teenagers face from parents and peers. You can feel Cianfrance biting off more and more until his mouth is too full to chew.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Joe Neumaier

    The poetry in The Place Beyond the Pines can be elusive, but also easy to get lost in.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Andrew O'Hehir

    I never stopped being interested in The Place Beyond the Pines, and never stopped rooting for Cianfrance to make the hubristic ambition of his immense tripartite scheme pay off, even as it evidently falls apart. Full Review
  • Scott Foundas

    The Place Beyond the Pines is a much bigger canvas, and scene by scene it can be riveting...But the disparate pieces never quite jell; the movie is all trees and no forest.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Joshua Rothkopf

    Yet after the actorcentric fireworks of Cianfrance’s "Blue Valentine" (2010), it’s impressive to see him going after a wider sociopolitical scope, one that would have been better served by a less repetitive structure.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Henry Barnes

    The Place Beyond the Pines is ambitious and epic, perhaps to a fault.

    The Guardian Full Review
  • Rene Rodriguez

    While the scope of the movie is bigger, its impact is smaller. "Blue Valentine" was a precise, heartrending portrait of a marriage coming apart at the seams. The theme of his new movie is a lot harder to discern.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Mark Jenkins

    Too much of this seething drama is devoted not to characterization but to posturing.

    NPR Full Review
  • Chris Nashawaty

    It's a slow-burner that burns so slowly its wick completely fizzles out.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    Unwieldy, overlong and overly reliant on melodramatic coincidences, A Place in the Pines is still better than it has any right to be, thanks to its cast.

    McClatchy-Tribune News Service Full Review
  • David Denby

    Cool, violent, a cigarette dangling from his mouth, Gosling reprises his inexorable-loner routine from “Drive.” Cianfrance and the screenwriters Ben Coccio and Darius Marder wrote thirty-seven drafts of the script, but gave him almost nothing to say. He rides, he smokes, he knocks over banks, he loves his baby, and that’s it.

    The New Yorker Full Review
  • David Edelstein

    The segments are essentially monodramas, so sketchily written that the big moments feel less like recognizable human behavior than recognizable screenwriter overreaching.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Peter Debruge

    Two half-stories about fathers and sons on opposite sides of the law do not a full movie make in The Place Beyond the Pines, the overlong and under-conceived reunion between “Blue Valentine” director Derek Cianfrance and lookalike star Ryan Gosling.

    Variety Full Review
  • The film never reaches a climax because it's always in one, distilling the lives of its characters to their tensest moments.
