If anyone else was making a movie called The Place Beyond the Pines about a motorcycle pro who takes up bank-robbing to support his family, I’d openly laugh in their face for their stupidity. But this is Derek Cianfrance we’re talking about and as he showed with his amazingly dramatic film, Blue Valentine, the dude knows what he is doing. Now Bradley Cooper is joining the cast of Beyond the Pines as the cop chasing Ryan Gosling’s bank-robbing motorcyclist. Take two handsome dudes being directed by a person with more-than-competent skills and have them rob banks while riding motorcycles? I really don’t see how this is being made. It’s almost TOO MUCH.
