The Place Beyond The Pines: Deleted Scene - ‘Luke Goes to Jail’
And this year’s award for biggest reason why you shouldn’t trust most film critics goes to: Only God Forgives. It’s not perfect like Drive, but booed out of Cannes? Seriously? With all of the drivel that’s released every year? Get your shit together. It’s abstract, bloody, and kind of beautiful, like a nightmare you don’t wanna wake up from.
Ryan and I are practically one. We are so very similar, it’s like we must have been twins separated at birth. But then of course, then there’s the question of who is the good and who is the bad twin. He is incredibly talented, he can say a thousand words without saying anything. When you have such a cinema powerhouse, why wouldn’t you want to use it?

Cianfrance was adamant not to let production designers dig the hole for Ryan in the scene where Dean is burying his dog. Ryan dug it himself and an hour and a half later, “when he was done digging the hole, he broke down. And that was an unscripted scene, him crying at the table. He was actually so emotional and what he told me afterwards was that, that process tricked his body because his body was so exhausted and his body didn’t know that that wasn’t his dog. His body just buried his dog, and his body reacted in that way.”
