The Place Beyond the Pines (2012)
6/10 on the Pig-O-Meter. I really wanted to like this film. Unfortunately, I did not. The acting was truly fantastic. Cinematography was brilliant. It might be worth it, just for the performances and the filming alone. The story? It could have been great! It should have been great! But, it was told so poorly. It was 'coincidental' at best, and disjointed at worst. The pacing was dreadful. There is no reason to care what happens to any of these characters. This is not the actors fault. This all falls on the director (and I loved Blue Valentine). You will be better off renting this 8 months from now, vs paying for it at the theater...
