Surprisingly good! Really enjoyed it and its one of the few movies I know that really profits from its over-long runtime without having a feeling about it that it is dragged out unnecessarily.
What this movie showed and reminded me is the fact that an intact family is of utmost importance for the growing up of a child, for his/her development. Its not that important whether or not the parents are rich, but if they fail to provide a healthy invironment, chances are good that the child is going to suffer horribly from it!

A Place Beyond the Pines or the Place Beyond the Pines, whatever you want to call it, I'd say a lot better than Blue Valentine.
It's a lot more ambitious, it has a much larger scale than Blue Valentine. This movie makes me want to see more movies from this director in the future and I'm hoping that his scale continues to grow.

I can see him making something and it turning out to be very successful, at some point in the future. I can see him making a unanimously good decision for a unanimously liked movie, a crowd pleaser per-se but not something that's the Avengers.

The Place Beyond the Pines was very good. Seven out of ten, I would have given it an eight if the whole movie was like the first third of the movie. It was definitively better than the rest of the movie and I love that it started out on such a high note. I was kinda hoping that it would finish with the same sort of high note.

It kinda had a stupid ending, near the end.
Otherwise it was pretty enjoyable.
