I went to see The Place Beyond the Pines today. A film starring Ryan Gosling and Bradley Cooper. The trailer seems to promise a sort of Drive-like film, but it's not really like Drive.
Anyway, this definitely ranks amongst my favourite films I've seen this year so far. I feel like I can't tell much about it without spoiling it (partially), but I'll just say the film takes a nice twist after about 30 minutes and then really starts showing off its ambition. I can imagine not everyone will like this film, but to me it felt like something different.
So I recommend this. I think some of you will love it at least.

Frankly, I've never read or heard one of his reviews, but I do know he was one of the most respected film critics out there. I should check out some of his stuff sometime.
