Ryan Gosling is that guy who you think is doing it right and has a very bright and up beat future, but then I saw the movie. He can not put two and two together. I see where he was trying to go with the Detroit neighborhood but I do not think the movie came together very well. If there is an upside to this, it would be that I very much enjoyed the music and would listen to it more often then the words. I was just hoping for more... I hope we get that in his next film, whatever it might be.
