Deserves 7. something, currently less than that due to teeny bopper Gosling fans
The reviews for this film have really been skewed, I would imagine due to people viewing this film expecting it to be something that it's not. If you're viewing the film for Ryan Gosling, turn back now. There isn't a standout handsome male lead in this film.
If you're viewing this in order to enjoy a surreal film with wonderful cinematography then proceed. The cinematography really stands out here. The plot is interesting, although I didn't understand it 100% (these are my favorite type of movies). There seem to be homages to some of Ryan Gosling's recent films which I find pretty cool.
