Critical Reaction: “The Place Beyond the Pines” (PODCAST)

Though 2013 is only three months old, The Place Beyond The Pines is easily one of the strongest and most ambitious films of the year.  In the story of three different lives across a couple of generations, Derek Cianfrance, director of Blue Valentine, creates a raw and riveting character drama, headed by a spectacular Ryan Gosling and an equally-as-impressive Bradley Cooper.
