Who is this man standing over me? Oh. It's Ryan Gosling. I wish he weren't wearing a shirt. Wait. He's saying something to me, but I can't hear it because the ringing is back.
The only "humanity" comes from Ryan Gosling's sensitive tres masculin eyes. In fact, silent eye-contact is the most profound communication of the film.
The first few days of the Cannes Film Festival have been marked by surprises -- whether in the shifting national identity of movies, or peace-making efforts between towering directors -- and parties that defy the rain.
This week I went to see The Place Beyond the Pines. I loved the whole film and was engaged every moment of the way. But what I want to talk about is the first section, the Gosling section; I want to make love to this section.
Shoulder to shoulder like Homeric heroes, Ryan Gosling and Bradley Cooper descended the long stairs at the Landmark Theater on Thursday night, joining others of the cast and crew onstage for the premiere of Derek Cianfrance's new movie, The Place Beyond the Pines.

Derek Cianfrance's The Place Beyond the Pines is a sure-handed effort from a director who proved himself capable of dramatizing difficult human emotions in Blue Valentine.
My husband and I are opposites. He has dark skin; I have light. He has black hair; mine is blonde. He loves sports; I am an art nerd. He reads science fiction novels; I like Us Magazine (particularly when they show Ryan Gosling without his shirt on). The list goes on and on...
If I could find myself in an alternate universe, there would be all the men I love -- and in this alternate universe all these men I love would find me irresistible and they wouldn't be married.
Kathryn Bigelow's Zero Dark Thirty finally went wide this weekend and it grossed $24 million to top the weekend box office. All eyes were on this one, with the big question being whether critical acclaim and film punditry would translate into mainstream interest.
Gangster Squad is not a good movie. But it is that rarity in today's ultra-aware and uber-cynical age; a film so gleefully absurd and ridiculously cliched that it achieves a kind of skewed entertainment value.
Gangster Squad, a movie that is not about a squad of gangsters, opens -- finally -- this Friday. Gangster Squad stars Josh Brolin (Milk) as a Los Angeles cop placed in charge of taking down the operations of very animated gangster played by Sean Penn (Milk). Gangster Squad also stars Ryan Gosling (Crazy, Stupid, Love) and Emma Stone (Crazy, Stupid, Love). As a service, we answer every question that you could have about Gangster Squad.
You get the feeling that Ruben Fleischer would have been happy to make an homage to the gangster movies of the 1940s (filtered through both a 1970s and a 21st-century perspective) when he was making Gangster Squad.
Hey there 2013. It's so nice to finally meet you. I've heard a lot about you from your predecessor, and I'm sorry I was so out of commission yesterday that I missed your actual first day in the office. I know you've got some big shoes to fill, but I'm excited to see what you're made of.
