That is all.
Ryan Gosling. That is also all.
I really liked it.
Bianca - would you?
I think nice is the main criteria for films I like
I like Ryan Gosling, but that was one thoroughly charmless and unconvincing central character. Found him totally unlikeable, and the central premise uninvolving and fatally implausible.
In fact its probably a bit of a love it or hate it.
*cue someone saying "I didn't mind it"
The film wasn't going for a realistic tone
There's nothing wrong with implausibility in a film, because, well, its a film...
But the 'world' of the film needs to be carefully created and fully realised so you have a climate where you can be empathetic with the characters and suspend disbelief for the duration of the running time. Lars... simply didn't do that for me.
I was left thinking, "This guy is a dick, I'm not buying this"
I was worried that it might be a bit of a one-joke comedy, but it was actually very warm and charming.
it's alright, kinda sweet, a lot better than i thought it would be
