Independent Cinema - The Place Beyond the Pines Review

Independent Cinema writes: With Derek Cianfrance’s debut feature-length film, Blue Valentine, an extremely intimate portrait of a decaying relationship was shown in unflinching detail. The result was one of the best films of that year, with its two lead actors delivering powerhouse performances, resulting in an Academy Award nomination for Michelle Williams. I don’t think The Place Beyond the Pines will get the recognition it deserves come Oscar time, but Cianfrance has crafted a more ambitious, expectation-defying epic about the bond between a father and his son. In what seems like an intimate film, Mike Patton’s beautiful score and Sean Bobbitt’s mix of claustrophobic and vast shots creates a feeling of something grand happening, something that spans generations, but only cares about a handful of individuals and how their lives intersect.

I was on the fence with this one. At least Richard Roeper gave it a 4/4. I think I'll check it out.

Very good movie. Even my girlfriend, who hates dramatic films, said he would see it again. Hope it doesn't get ignored over awards season.
