I totally dug it.  Really, don't know what else to say about it except I'm kicking myself for waiting so long to see it.  Looked great (loved the Alexa photography of LA at night, it sort of reminds me of Collateral expect this was sharper and crisper), I dug all the casting choices (Bryan Cranston for sure, Rol Perlman, and yeah, Albert Brooks was a brilliant choice, it was great to see Scorpio be a proper bad guy... I love how he kills).  And yeah, I love the connection between Mulsy and Gosling in this, it's very quiet, very subtext.  I read that it was inspired by John Hughes movies, which also explains the neon cursive credits.

Yeah, there's not a lot of dialogue in this, the script, as I mentioned, was only 81 pages long!  And when you watch it you think "of course it is, no one's speaking, there's lots of slow motion... it's a very stark, streamlined flick, which I appreciate.

And something I totally appreciated, I think I said, was how the music wasn't the same "best of the 80s" hits you hear whenever someone sets a movie in the 80s (I know this wasn't SET in the 80s, but you get the idea).  Some i hadn't even heard before.

The one thing that bugs me though: was the mask supposed to be anyone?  I kept feeling like I should recognize it, like the William Shatner mask in Halloween.
