The Place Beyond the Pines ★★★½

This is a really somber and quiet movie that never gives away where it’s going and constantly keeps you guessing. The performances from Ryan Gosling and Bradley Cooper are great as to expected. This is one of those interconnecting story films that either works or ends up a mess, and for the most part this is the former. I do think the main plot of the Cooper segment was a little pointless in the grand scheme of things and the ending leaves more to be desired. But that first hour with Gosling is pure excellence, giving off total Drive vibes. Cool movie, check it out.
