|This movie will most definitely be on my "2011 Top 5 Movies"
The movie is beautiful, a real eye pleaser. The way LA is portraid makes the city iconic and mystic. Makes it a city you have to visit[real LA is not like that though]
Ryan Gosling is perfect for this introvert mysterious guy. The relationship between him and Irene(Carey Mulligan) might come of as too good to be true, but it's still perfect for the type of movie. You want them the best. But since this is a Winding Refn movie you know that's NOT going to be the case.
There's some insanely brutal and violent scenes in the movie, they are few but powerful. And mixed with the beautiful shots it stands as almost absurd and paradoxical.
Great movie that most def deserves the current 8.4 on IMDB. Glad to see Winding Refn have success in Hollywood.
