1/10 for me for the 2nd 'hope-I-change-my-mind' viewing. Should be 0/10 actually. The reason is the chick. She's cute. (acutally she has more emotion and dialogue than the main character). . The main character does not have a name, emotion or dialogue. Love how the camera is setup for a dramatic close up shot to Gosling's face and then it's like looking at a plank of wood. The same emotion throughout the entire movie.The movie gives the audience nothing to root for. I understand what the director is trying to accomplish, but imho, it's just doesn't work. The pace of the whole film is very .. extremely slow. It keeps dragging and on and on. Thank goodness that this was not nominated for an Oscar. The movie was more of a waste of time, and I'd rather watch paint dry. Not ever watching this again.
I kept making jokes to my girlffriend like. "this is my happy... this is me sad... this is me kicking your face in..." There was no acting range besides "wooden" for the main character. No wonder Nic Cage movies do so well, if this is the type of crap that can be considered a good movie
