    Wall Street JournalJoe Morgenstern

    Few actors working today could make emotional sense of such a protean character, but Ryan Gosling does so with calm authority. He's a formidable presence in a film that grabs your gaze and won't let go except for moments when you can't help but look away.

    So it's a fun, if not exhilarating, ride, one sped along with the help of a wonderfully assembled cast.
