Beautiful. Bizarre. French. Art. Flick.
Never got a chance to watch it again before returning it, pretty fuzzy from 4 months ago. 7/10
Loved looking back to the heights of Hitchcock movie mania - super production and Hopkins' guise. Unfortunately the story wasn't as riveting as a Hitchcock plot. 6/10
Fascinating and tragic story of a man that probably made a significant impact on my life. 7/10
The Place Beyond the Pines
I had to stop the movie to write down some thoughts (watching on Air Canada flight)
Oh what a tangled web we weave. Only flaw was AJ - couldn't connect him, didn't really fit. But otherwise, rich, complex, beautifully acted masterpiece. Raw, real, rugged. Tragic, frightening and glimmers of humanity and hope. Gosling and Dane Dehaan were standouts. 9/10
Great non-baddy. Humour made it entertaining and took the edge off the violence. Effects were a bit too much, but still lots of fun. 7/10.
The beauty of imperfection. Nice near future imagery, well acted and interesting premise. More in the movie than its thin layer of plot, worth contemplating for a while. 7/10
Difficult subject matter twisted with a superbly crafter plot. Rock solid performance by Washington and a lovely surprise from Reilly. Goodman's cameos were delightful and provided a little humour and break in the heavy drama. Thought provoking, but rooted in the beauty of our imperfect human life. 7/10.
