The film feels poorly made and unfocused upon first viewing...but you have a need to watch it again. Then you realize why. It is haunting. Amazing.

I criminally misunderstood these delicately beautiful themes in the movie. Thank you for sharing this, my appreciation for this movie is even more now. #ENNL

I watched this movie on youtube at about one in the morning, never heard of it and I knew nothing about it but I knew Gosling and that was enough to get me to get me to check it out. Didn't sleep that night, never really planned to, but the next day there was this inescapable feeling hanging over me and this movie just wouldn't leave my head. Beautifully understated and unique and just all around gorgeous, and this video finally helped me figure out at least one of the components as to why it had such a profound impact on me

Haven't seen this movie since it released but it was fantastic. Your content makes me want to watch it again. Also I highly recommend the Broken Circle Breakdown(2012) if you haven't seen it yet. Another emotional rollercoaster of a film
