Khef’s review published on Letterboxd:
Wow, The Place Beyond the Pines just blew me away. After waiting so long to see this film, I finally got to see it, and I can say it has been the best experience of this year so far.
Ryan Gosling and Bradley Cooper, they were absolutely fantastic. Once again, Gosling plays his role with a great passion, it is truly amazing the way that his character feels real. The rest of the cast, such as Eva Mendez and Ray Liotta, were very good as well.
I'm surprised to see how the film divides and gives the correct time to each character, you can appreciate every single scene.
The story is very emotional and you can tell that everyone involved in this film managed to make it feel natural.
With amazing shots, beautiful music, outstanding acting, solid story, and a brilliant direction, I'm all pleased to say that this is another remarkable and excellent piece of work from Derek Cianfrance.
