Ryan Gosling has been on my radar since his incredible turn in The Believer which is about 10 years old now and I can't wait to see this especially as Refn is behind it. Superb director.

I've never seen any of Refn's other films, but I need to after seeing this one.

He is a very acquired taste. His Pusher trilogy is superb but not for everyone (in his native tongue too). Valhalla Rising is absolutely gobsmacking but very very slow. Bronson is an interesting film but a little misguided considering that Refn never actually match Bronson (it is about Britain's longest serving prisoner).

I watched Bronson last week, it's pretty good - quite quirky/funny considering the subject at hand. Drive is the only other of his movies the I've seen, though I've got Valhalla Rising on my to-watch list at the moment.

Drive is the best film from 2011 that I've seen.

If you want more Refn, start with Pusher. It's easily his #1/#2 film.

I must be the only one who didn't like this movie. I got tired of watching Gosling stand around with a stupid look on his face. Also there were only two driving scenes and they hyped it like that would be a central part of the movie. I just wasnt taken with this movie, but i seem to be alone in that thought. IMDB certainly rates it high and I normally find them to be spot on with ratings for the most part. And as Jack said, The Believer was a fantastic movie.

Saw J. EDGAR last night. Dicaprio was very good, he really had the mannerisms and voice down really well. I tend to like historical pieces, as you tend to find out stuff you very rarely know. I found his biography which was a top ten seller was far more informative, but books normally are. It started very well for about an hour and seemed to drag on a bit in the middle and latter parts. I felt the overall movie was worth a watch, but I wasn't deeply satisfied with the way they ended the movie. They left out the whole fifties red scare theme which I thought would be central in the plot. Definitely worth a watch, but not as astounding as i imagined it would be.

Dont. that movie was horrible, and the second one will probably be just as bad. Nicholas Cage should've stopped a long time ago.

Creep (2004)
Sort of good horror movie with plenty of disturbing shit in it, and a few inspired moments, but didn't really add up to much unfortunately. I wish the plot had been developed a little more. Franka Potente was okay, but not nearly as enjoyable to watch as she was in Run Lola Run.




Tetsuo: The Bullet Man (2009)
Japan is the only country on this planet that could have produced a movie like this. Sci-fi, video gamish and fairly geeky, this film is also violent, disturbing and weirdly artsy. Imagine what a hybrid of Eraserhead and Akira would be like and you have a pretty good sense of the overall feel. Definitely interesting but I wish the director hadn't chosen to make the movie in English since, for me, all it did was highlight how awful the acting was.

Have you seen what I think is the original film that The Bullet Man is a sequel to: Tetsuo: The Iron Man? A fantastic film, and essentially what you described. If you have, how do the two compare? Tetsuo: The Bullet Man has been on my watch list for quite some time but the freight train of experimentality in the first film makes me hesitate for when I'm really ready.
