    I did a search on this website, and clicked through 20 pages and could not find a post for this film.  I liked it, i feel as though the end meandered a bit, but well done, better than I expected.  If a thread does exist this can be closed but I would appreciate people let me know if that happens, and searching on this website is a mess!

    Well I came up with no other thread as well.

    This is still what I feel is the best film I’ve seen so far this year. It took me on a journey I wasnt expecting. In many ways, Pines is a visionary film. Cianfrance’s direction is stellar, and Ben Mendelsohn, Dane DeHaan and Ryan Gosling took my breath away.

    I absolutely loved this film. I think it’s Oscar worthy on many levels, from Best Picture to Best Director, Editing, Cinematography, Original Screenplay, and the performances by Gosling, Cooper, Mendes, and DeHaan. I also really dug the score.

    Very well shot!  I can see a screenplay, I think Cooper over acted a bit (he was not bad) just a little too hammy for my taste, I think Gosling was great as well.  As someone who has lived in Schenectady they captured the city very well!!

    This will go down as one of those under rated films of the year

    In retrospect, I think Cooper was pretty good. At least, I bought his character by the end. Personally I thought Mendelsohn reinforces his stellar work in Animal Kingdom.
    If I have any criticism it’s Mendes’ aging makeup.  Um, I’m not so sure….of course, it’s Eva.
     I hope the film isnt forgotten during the awards circuit. It’s box office is surprising (not bad), and the Academy’s collective memories appear to be unpredictably sharp in terms of early releases and Indy films. I guess we’ll see.

    ^I liked Mendelsohn a lot, but I was very impressed with Cooper, more so here than even ‘Silver Linings Playbook’. And I don’t think Mendes has ever been better. Gosling was terrific as well, leaving a long lasting impression that runs through the whole film. Dane DeHaan is also stellar in his section. As of right now, Bradley Cooper would be my winner in Supporting Actor, but obviously it is WAY too early to even be talking about that. I’d consider the film in the following categories:

    Best Picture
    Best Director
    Best Editing
    Best Cinematography
    Best Original Score
    Best Original Screenplay
    Best Actor- Ryan Gosling
    Best Supporting Actor- Bradley Cooper
    Best Supporting Actor- Dane DeHaan
    Best Supporting Actor- Ben Mendelsohn
    Best Supporting Actress- Eva Mendes

    I think it will be unfortunately forgotten by the time awards season rolls around, but I hope it reminds fans of Bradley Cooper that he is a solid actor when he isn’t making bank for ridiculous threequels (that’s getting trampled on by a ridiculous sixquel). I’m also happy to see Rose Byrne in anything. She broke through with the FX series, Damages, going toe-to-toe with Glenn Close, and she was the true supporting star of Bridesmaids (much harder role to pull off than McCarthy’s). With the right role and the right director, she’s going to nab a role that will sweep awards season. She’s that good, as proven again in The Place Beyond the Pines.
