Goofs

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. However, Bones says to the collector, "There's about a hundred dollars worth in the bag!" He's not referring to the single pipe which he pulls out and hands to the collector; he's referring to the bag's entire contents. Given the size of the bag, and the amount he stuffed in there, it's conceivable that he has roughly 50 lbs. of scrap copper to sell. See more »

Really wanted to enjoy this film.
27 April 2015 | by See all my reviews

Watched the trailer and was mesmerized by some of the imagery that Ryan Gosling has managed to capture.

Then I watched the film itself.

It felt like i was watching the extended version of the trailer, small snippets of dialogue surrounded by vast dreamlike imagery but with no actual story to go with it.

This film isn't bad its just that it's not very good either. I felt like i was left wanting a little bit more, that it hadn't really fulfilled my appetite.

That said there is potential and because Gosling is just so damned cool I will be looking forward to the next step (Fan boy mode deactivated).
