Issac’s review published on Letterboxd:
An artistic action thriller. It’s dark and gritty with some intense scenes that are beautiful to watch. Ryan Gosling has like a total of 10 lines maybe but his acting is tough, serious, calm, his performance was great and this, along with his many other roles, just proves that he’s definitely one of the greatest actors out there.
I’ve never seen a Refn film before so I didn’t know what to expect but these scenes were visually wonderful, the music was perfect, and the pacing was great. Not a dull moment at all throughout this film, however, that elevator scene is definitely a favorite of mine and I couldn’t see that scene being any more perfect.
