Derek Cianfrance sticks with Ryan Gosling, again goes deep

Derek Cianfrance channeled John Cassavetes with his raw, doomed 2010 romance “Blue Valentine.” His third film, “The Place Beyond the Pines” (his 1998 debut feature, “Brother Tied,” was well received on the festival circuit but never released) aims for Scorsese territory in its operatic fusion of crime and family drama as the sins of fathers are visited on sons.

So it’s a bit surprising to hear that one of the films he considers most influential to his career is the 1982 horror anthology “Creepshow.”
