Sam’s review published on Letterboxd:
I tend to find flaws in film.
I tend to look for a meaning even when the story explicitly doesn’t call for one.
I also tend to pick shots apart piece and by piece.
This film, even with the ambiguous ending, was amazing. Ryan Gosling’s performance absolutely blew me away. I wanted to know more. I wanted to know his back story (and trust me, that’s something I tend to harp on) but I didn’t need it. I needed everything that the film gave me and nothing else.
The production was perfect. The sound editing and mixing was perfect. The characters were wonderful and believable.
See this one.
Definitely lives up to the hype.
