A riveting crime thriller, it's also a multi-generational familial saga that approaches Greek tragedy.
One-third wonderful, The Place Beyond the Pines weakens as it unfolds for lack of what makes the early part so good.
Cianfrance generally shows again that he knows how to build immersive characterizations with his actors. And while this sorrowful triptych is uneven and perhaps overly ambitious, the director displays a cool mastery of atmospherics and tone.
It's a slow-burner that burns so slowly its wick completely fizzles out.
