Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Its three stories are so loosely connected, its themes so scattered -- morality, justice, fate, fatherhood -- that it never manages to make a point.
Fresh: This naturalistic drama is ambitious to the point of being unwieldy... But once the story has advanced from one generation to the next and its thematic sweep has become apparent, these flaws seem much more tolerable.
Fresh: This is a story about legacy, the sins of the father, the restlessness in our souls. It's powerful, it's bold, it hits you hard.
Fresh: "Pines" is hardy stuff, but it's at its toughest when Gosling's on screen.
Love it or you hate it
If viewers either love or hate a movie, then there's a good chance that I'll love it. I just love offbeat, and unusual film.
And, I loved this movie. The mood is dark and foreboding. There's a haunting undercurrent that keeps my interest. It's paced slowly, but to me, it was never boring. It was uncomfortable. And, I can watch it again and again.
I don't know
The truth is at the beginning it was really awesome and incredible but the story didn't play itself right. I'd prefer if you rent this. It's not a must watch and although entertaining at the beginning I'd prefer to have bought another movie.
One of the best
I really loved it
Everything is perfect and so professional
