YMMV: The Place Beyond The Pines
  • Darkness-Induced Audience Apathy: There is hardly any "Hope Spot's in this film."
  • Jerkass Woobie: Luke, whose erratic behavior is contrasted with his genuine desire to be a better man.
  • Just Eat Gilligan: Everything could have been avoided had Romina been a little more upfront towards Jason concerning Luke.
  • Moral Event Horizon: Any sympathy for Luke is lost when he strikes Romina's husband Kofi with a wrench, and later putting a gun in Robin's mouth and subjecting him to some fairly sadistic psychological torture.
  • The Scrappy: AJ (and Emory Cohen's performance) is despised for his Jerk Ass behavior and arrogant attitude. Cohen's apparent Marlon Brando impression doesn't help.
