The Place Beyond the Pines - Mayan Theatre, 7:00pm

The Place Beyond the Pines won our poll, so it's our movie for this week. We will meet in the lobby of the Mayan (110 Broadway) at 7:00pm on Thursday, April 11, for the 7:15pm showing.  I'll be in the lobby holding the Denver Cinema Club sign for any new people who would like to join us.  After the movie, we'll go somewhere in the neighborhood for food and/or drinks.

I hope to see many of you there!

    Jim...you really didn't see it coming after he drove through a cemetery filled with Pines? I knew it was only a matter of time after that. Pines seeemed to be an ominous omen...right Bob? So what about Jason riding off into the sunset...on the Plains? Isn't the director trying to say, he's changed his future by finally discovering out who his dad was. Not so sure about Cooper's son...I didn't much care for him anyways...he was the real criminal. ???

      Thanks for clearing that up, Richard. ;)

    My apologies to the director for misstating his last name. It's Cianfrance, not Cianfranco. We have some good films coming up this week. Be sure to check the Denver Cinema Club website.

    As always, I love this group. The people are what makes it work. Thanks for joining us for our films, especially those of you who joined after the Arthouse Film group folded. Despite positive reviews by the pros, not all of these films prove winners. However, they provoke good, interesting, heartfelt discussions. Add great folks to the mix, and you can't beat that.

    I liked the film although I am in agreement that parts were contrived. The intensity of the film and the acting by Cooper and Gosling made up for what I thought were holes in the plot. Someone made a poignant comment: this film is about what happens when the past is not dealt with. Also, as a female watching something where all the roles were males, I wondered how plausible most men found it. I certainly can't relate to most of it so it enters the category of entertainment for me; not great film but entertaining. And I still need to figure out if there were Pine trees in it. ;)

    Insulting, contrived hogwash. Those are the only family-friendly words I can use.

      I was rooting for the end of the film. Truly, I almost left midway. And yes, Jim. It had to happen that way or else the coup d' grace would be between cop and DA, not the sons and DA.

    Interesting movie; not sure I liked it, however. It had many flaws.

    Enjoyed this film a lot. Fascinating characters who are often void of character themselves and whose legacies are thrust upon others who deserve better. Redemption doesn't come easy for anyone in this film and the past is never too far behind. Gutsy director too! Highly recommend!

    Verdict is still out. Predictable plot line but left me thinking about the things not included in the film.

    Do we need to buy tickets in advance or can we buy them at the door?

      Never hurts to buy in advance but I believe it's been out since last Friday so it seems unlikely it would be sold out.

      We're usually ok on a Thursday night but as Richard said, getting them in advance never hurts.
