The early months of the year are always a little bleak, cinematically speaking, as the last few weeks have demonstrated ("Gangster Squad," "Movie 43," "Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters" et al). And bright spots over the next few months are fairly sparse too, but we know for sure that there's some good news on the way, in the shape of Derek Cianfrance's "The Place Beyond The Pines." We were always looking forward to it, seeing as it was the follow-up to the director's excellent "Blue Valentine," and that it saw the filmmaker reteam with Ryan Gosling. And with Bradley Cooper, Ben Mendelsohn, Dane DeHaan, Emory Cohen, Eva Mendes, Rose Byrne and Ray Liotta also on board, our anticipation only increased.

Easily, hands down, the best movie I saw at TIFF this year, and already with a place reserved on my Best Of 2013, Derek Cianfrance's "The Place Beyond The Pines" is, as I wrote in my review, "a brilliant, towering picture." And yes, that quote has been surprisingly pulled for the trailer. And yes, this latest reunion between "Blue Valentine" helmer Cianfrance and Ryan Gosling is a knockout.

Like most festivals, the Toronto International Film Festival is somewhat frontloaded (much to the complains of many of its attendees), with most of the big films playing on or around the first weekend of the festival. But in fact, the festival wrapped up officially yesterday, and as we speak, The Playlist are officially departing the city for another year.

“I'm interested in telling stories about families,” Derek Cianfrance, the director of “The Place Beyond The Pines,” said this week during the Toronto International Film Festival, where his hotly anticipated drama finally premiered to much acclaim. Cianfrance stormed Sundance in 1998 with “Brother Tied,” a picture that was critically acclaimed at the festival, but then vanished afterwards. It wasn’t until twelve years later that he returned with his sophomore feature effort, “Blue Valentine,” a searing family drama about a marriage in irreparable decay, starring Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams, which put him squarely back on the map.

Derek Cianfrance's "The Place Beyond the Pines" was one of the most anticipated films of the Toronto International Film Festival and, meeting lofty expectations, the film made a big splash this weekend in Canada's largest city. Starring Ryan Gosling, Bradley Cooper, Eva Mendes, Ray Liotta, Rose Byrne, Dane DeHaan, Ben Mendelsohn and standout newcomer Emory Cohen, reviews of 'Pines' were largely glowing (you can read our A-grade review here), a bidding war for the North Amercan rights started almost immediately and the the film finally landed in the arms of Focus Features.

We've not actually asked him, but we suspect strongly that the favorite film of the last few days of Kevin Jagernauth, our man on the ground at the Toronto International Film Festival, is "The Place Beyond The Pines," director Derek Cianfrance's follow-up to the acclaimed "Blue Valentine," which reunites him with star Ryan Gosling, as well as bringing in Bradley Cooper, Eva Mendes, Ray Liotta, Dane DeHann and more, for an epic, decades-spanning crime saga.

Several days into this year's Toronto International Film Festival, the buyers' market hasn't quite caught fire yet. A few films have been picked up, mostly on the smaller scale of things, but the first few days have mostly been made up of films that already have distribution – the "Cloud Atlas"es, "Silver Linings Playbook"s and "Anna Karenina"s of the world. But in the next few days, the real hot tickets start to unspool, and the first major acquisition of the festival has been made.

Of all the films arriving at TIFF this year, few are premiering under such an air of mystery as Derek Cianfrance's "The Place Beyond The Pines." With only a couple of official images, but no posters or trailers, the tone and scope of the movie remained under wraps. Following "Blue Valentine," would the film be a similarly intimate and narrowly focused story or something completely different? The answer is that "The Place Beyond The Pines" is an ambitious epic that is cut from some of the same thematic tissue as Cianfrance's previous film, but expands the scope into a wondrously widescreen tale of fathers, sons and the legacy of sins that are passed down through the generations.
