Michael SweatpantsDisco’s review published on Letterboxd:
Forgot how good this was. Best Nicolas Winding Refn movie I've seen by far. Gosling could have fucked this role up 100 different ways, but he pulls it off perfectly somehow. Bryan Cranston, Albert Brooks, Ron Perlman, & Oscar Isaac (now that I know who he is all these years later) were also a pleasure to watch.
Also worth looking over IMDb's trivia page on this flick if you haven't seen it. Lots of interesting tidbits in there.
