'The Place Beyond the Pines': Director Derek Cianfrance on shooting the motorcycle scene -- VIDEO

Director Derek Cianfrance’s films often focus on the emotional, like the intense relationship between Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams’ characters in 2010’s Blue Valentine. In his latest film, The Place Beyond the Pines, which premiered at the Toronto Film Festival last year and is being released in theaters this weekend, Gosling returns but in a harder-edged role.

In the scene below, which Cianfrance talks us through in accompanying commentary, Gosling’s character, Luke, is being chased through the woods by Ben Mendelsohn, who plays a mechanic with whom Luke later teams up to rob banks.

“It doesn’t always have to be about words; it doesn’t always have to be about talking,” Cianfrance says of the chase scene. Check out the exclusive clip and commentary below:

The Place Beyond the Pines opens March 29 andĀ also stars Eva Mendes, Bradley Cooper, and Rose Byrne.
