poor all round
14 April 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

i was looking forward to this as i like the entertaining art-house(weird and wonderful) types of film. having seen the scores i thought well the sypnosis sounds great. having said this i thought the movie was truly awful,violent for no reason and b-movie standard. its got a few moments where you may think this is cool but all round its trash. it was almost like watching a stage play that had lots of storys jumbled together.definitely a downer film,nothing much for anyone to smile about! at its best moments its average.i gave it a 6 purely for the merit of gosling both directing and writing it...the visuals were well put together! the story seemed very disturbing for someone to think up and put down on paper! all in all its a turkey. i hope gosling learns from this and makes an entertaining more happier film in the future.
