Awesome: ‘Insight: Derek Cianfrance’ Examines The Directors Voice

The Place Beyond The Pines

Derek Cianfrance only has 3 films to his name, only two of which are even available on home video at this point, but he’s established himself as a director to pay attention to.

Kees van Dijkhuizen Jr. made himself known with his year end retrospective and [the films of] series of super cut videos. Now he’s turned his attention to Cianfrance in what I sincerely hope is the first of a new series of videos called “Insight: Derek Cianfrance” in which clips from both _Blue Valentine_ and _The Place Beyond The Pines_ are edited together with commentary narration from Cianfrance himself.

The end result is a tidy little sum up of some of the filmmakers inspirations, voice, and goals with filmmaking which you should watch. So let’s do that!

I sincerely hope that this is a new series from van Dijkhuizen, his _[the films of]_ series did a fantastic job capturing the voice of the various directors he highlighted but this one adds a whole new level to that idea and there’s more than a few directors I’d like to see him tackle.
