weird, different, great first movie by Ryan. worth a watch if your patient.
Pretentious(f)art masking itself with the otherwise respected Gosling name. If you last longer than 20 mins then you sir or madam are far more patient than I. Pointless movie that leads to absolutely nowhere.
Ryan Gosling is talented. Great film!
Just another pointless meandering “art” movie. Couldn’t get through it.
Whoops, sorry, I posted my review by mistake so I'll carry on here. XD It has a David Lynch vibe, overall. I didn't have a problem with the pacing because it accentuated the dreamy quality of the story, but it's definitely not fast paced and probably isn't what people might expect from an actor (because people can make assumptions, etc.). It's an impressive debut.
