Stay

Today, I rented the movie Stay. I'm not sure why. Probably because I was going to be watching it alone, and I was pretty sure that this was one of those movies nobody would want to watch with me anyway...

First off, it's visually fascinating. Stunning and mind-boggling at times. Very stylized and abstract.

Secondly, Ryan Gosling is amazing. Not that that was a surprise. I swear, he's one of the best actors out there. Period.

Lastly, the story didn't work. It tried too hard to be sophisticated and complicated that it just left me both confused and underwhelmed. And the plot holes, man, they were everywhere. I think it tried to say too much about things we can't explain. The whole near-death experience that actually ends in death is just too much for an hour-and-a-half flick dealing with psychiatry, fine art and car crashes.

Anywho, there you go. I watched it so you don't have to. But Gosling was good.
