  • The Place Beyond the Pines has become one of my all-time personal favs.

    • I’m so happy to hear another person say that. It was completely snubbed by the Oscars and everyone I’ve shown it too has had a mediocre reaction. Yes, the narrative is contrived. I’ll be the first to admit it’s not a perfect film, but it’s still one of my all time favorites. Ryan Gosling’s performance is haunting, and there’s such power in the progression from generation to generation. It’s especially sobering to me as a father. The choices we make ripple down through our kids and beyond. Great movie.
