The Place Beyond the Pines' review: Ryan Gosling stuns in crime epic
"might be the best work Gosling has ever done"
"Setting aside three genuinely career-best performances, it's Cianfrance's assured direction that makes Pines so intoxicating. From the first bravura extended tracking shot following Gosling through a carnival, to the final image of a son echoing his father in ways he doesn't yet understand, this is simply a phenomenal talent at the top of his game.Source
The Place Beyond the Pines is one of the most ambitious and accomplished films of the year, a sweeping, searing family drama that packs a devastating emotional punch."
