The Place Beyond the Pines

The Place Beyond the Pines ★★★★★

We can only hope that our mistakes don't transcend generations, and if they do, that the more cherishable moments will prevail.

Three distinct, powerful acts. I've been searching for a story this equally human and sprawling forever. This is as operatic as the entire Star Wars saga and it's just one movie.

The score in particular feels so spellbindingly slight, like a lonesome hero searching for answers amongst a sea of never-ending faults. I'm gonna be hearing that in my head and thinking about the ending for days. What a goddamn movie.
