Bones tries to sell copper tubing he scrapped from a house to a scrap metal collector for $100. Copper only goes for about $2.00 a pound so he really wouldn't have gotten much more than that. See more »

Lost River. Nice first try from Gosling. A bit of Malick and Refn without the soul. Gosling has some interesting ideas. He failed in putting them together neatly, which may have been on purpose. In an age of omnipresent shiny stuff to grab our attention, Goslings shiny stuff doesn't quite hold mine. Good performances. Matt smith was a surprise. Ronin steals every scene she's in. Hendricks is OK, but predictable compared to the other performances. Mendez was great. Gosling knows how to get the most out of her. Story was a kind of redneck fairy tail that seems to be trending in Goslings mind. 4th movie in a row if you start from drive, through place bt pines, to Lost River.
