    Terrence Malik’s new film, Song to Song, will be released in March of 2017:

    In this modern love story set against the Austin, Texas music scene, two entangled couples — struggling songwriters Faye (Rooney Mara) and BV (Ryan Gosling), and music mogul Cook (Michael Fassbender) and the waitress whom he ensnares (Natalie Portman) — chase success through a rock ‘n’ roll landscape of seduction and betrayal.

    Ok, I’m in.

    According to IMDB: "Christian Bale was initially set to have a much more substantial role in the film but he ended up working only three to four days on the set."

    Also, Gosling was on Kimmel a few weeks ago and he said he shot all his scenes back in 2012 and didn't even know much about the film - nor if or when it'd ever come out.

    This sounds fantastic

    Sounds good, but Tree of Life was one of the few movies I've ever contemplated walking out on in the theatre. Hopefully this is better. (edit: apparently Tree of Life is 85 on metacritic... I would give it a 2/10).

    Yeah that one is a "love it or hate it" kind of film. It's very much an open-ended film, and if that kind of style isn't your thing I can see why you'd want to walk out on it. I knew it was going to be bizarre/open ended going in, so I just tried keeping as much of an open mind as possible.

    His best will always be "The Thin Red Line" though
  9. When I left the theater, I honestly had no idea whether I liked the movie a lot. But thankfully I saw it with one of my most thoughtful friends, so afterwards, he and I spent two or three hours talking about the film together. After that conversation, we both realized how much we (in retrospect) loved the film.

    The Tree of Life is potentially his masterwork and To the Wonder is maybe even better

    This sounds great but that cast is so bad. I keep hoping I'll love another Malik movie as much as Tree of Life, maybe this will be the one.

    The male cast, that is. Fassbender and Gosling are both uninteresting and lackluster imo, not to mention Fassbender being an abuser. I'm stoked about Natalie Portman and Rooney Mara, though.

    Gosling had an unfortunately extended period of uninteresting, brooding, James Dean-lite roles, but has let himself breathe and do more in recent movies, and we're all better off for it. He's great in La La Land and exceptional in the Nice Guys.

    That cast is A+

    What are some of his 'uninteresting' roles? I think Gosling is EASILY one of the best actors working today and have felt that way since The Believer.

    In the last few years I have learned to completely let my unfounded dislike of Ryan Gosling go and he's probably one of my favorite actors now

    Oh, how I love Ryan Gosling. I was so scared when he went on "hiatus". Guess that didn't last long, and is there an actor with better choices in roles? I can't name one. So badass.[​IMG]

    I used to loathe him for no reason. Since Drive and Blue Valentine I've had an unhealthy man crush. Weird how our perspectives change as humans.

    I love Gosling, but all the brooding and posturing he did in Blue Valentine/Place Beyond the Pines/Gangster Squad/Drive/Half Nelson/Only God Forgives runs together and is pretty same-y. I like a couple of those movies fine, but am glad he's showing other aspects of what he can do.

    Get out! Blue Valentine is like a horror movie for me, it's too real. Recall his drunken breakdown when he confronts Cindy at the hospital? Explosive. My dad used to think the same thing, and the other day he just blurted out "I love Ryan Gosling". He can do it all, it's that for Drive and Only God Forgives the role called for that acting style. He was merely following direction. Prior to all those movies is "The Believer", in which he is frighteningly good as the Jewish neo-nazi.

    That courtroom drama, whatever it was is the only one that is flat. Even when brooding, he's interesting. Start w/ Blue Valentine, much of it was improvised and will be a dagger in a heart to anyone who's ever tried to save a dying romance.
