The reviews for "The Place Beyond The Pines" keep rolling in. Here are the ones we've found so far.

From The Wall Street Journal's Michelle King: "The Story Behind ‘A Place Beyond the Pines." Read what she wrote HERE .

Andrew Robinson of the FilmSchoolRejects blog: "What the film truly discusses is what someone is willing to do selflessly for others." Read his review HERE .

Henry Barnes at The Guardian says "The Place Beyond the Pines needed a foot on the gas, instead there's sugar in the tank." Read his full review HERE .

From David Rooney at the Hollywood Reporter: "And while this sorrowful triptych is uneven and perhaps overly ambitious, the director displays a cool mastery of atmospherics and tone, aided by Mike Patton’s haunting score." Read his entire review HERE .

Kevin Jagernauth at The Playlist writes "all of these elements -- working class struggle, familial and generational discord, the relationship (or lack thereof) between fathers and sons -- builds tremendously into a film that feels like it has shades of classic Italian melodramas put through the lens of a distinctly American film." Read his review HERE.

From Collider's Matt Goldberg: "[Cianfrance] has told a tremendous story about unintended legacies, struggling to break free from the lives others have unintentionally laid out for us, and yet perhaps being locked into a destiny when we know of no other path."

From Alex Billington of FirstShowing.net: "Cianfrance tells a massive, generational story that spans beyond just Gosling into the lives of two families from the small town of Schenectady in upstate New York. And it's mesmerizing." Read the entire review HERE .

From Variety's Peter Debruge: "Where Blue Valentine" succeeded by laying bare elemental human emotions, then scrambling them in a way that felt daring and fresh, 'The Place Beyond the Pines' internalizes much of what the characters are feeling while telling their stories in rote, linear fashion." Read his review HERE.

From Movieline's Frank DiGiacomo: "But once Gosling's second film with filmmaker Derek Cianfrance — they made the remarkably pure heartbreaker Blue Valentine together — got started, it was clear that the two friends and a remarkable cast that included Bradley Cooper, Eva Mendes and Ben Mendelsohn had made a seriously good movie." Read what he wrote HERE .

From the LA Times' Steven Zeitchik: " 'Pines' is a symphony in three parts..." Read his review HERE .

From Deadline: Hollywood's Pete Hammond: "It’s difficult to describe this compelling film without revealing a lot of spoilers." Read what he had to say HERE .
