You either love this movie, or think it just plain stinks. Gosling said no more than 3 sentences the entire movie, so you think his silence is a brilliant interpretation of confidence and poise, or you think he stinks as an actor. The bright colors accented with the synth-heavy soundtrack either pays homage to the golden era of 80’s movies, or you think the color pink stinks. You’re either a fan of the protagonist’s confusingly cool, but weird signature jacket, or you think scorpions stink. Either way, the movie has acquired a massive cult following and earned uber-cool guy, Ryan Gosling, much acclaimed respect. Respect the Gosling.
