College (feat. Electric Youth) - A Real Hero
From Drive Soundtrack, which I can’t stop listening to.
This soundtrack! This movie!
I liked “Drive,” I liked it a whole lot — but be warned that it’s super, super violent. That being said, Ryan Gosling can do no wrong.
… and I seem to only watch movies in Budapest that star Ryan Gosling. Exhibit A was “Crazy, Stupid, Love.”
“There is a moment in “Blue Valentine” where Ryan Gosling’s character, Dean, is walking on the Brooklyn Bridge and trying to get his girlfriend, Cindy , played by Michelle Williams , to reveal a secret.The film’s writer-director, Derek Cianfrance, originally wrote the scene in a straightforward manner, but when it came to shooting it, he told Williams not to tell Gosling the secret no matter what. He told the actor he had to do whatever it took to find out. They shot for an hour in fading light, but no matter what he did, Gosling couldn’t get Williams to give up what she was hiding. Finally out of frustration, the 30-year-old actor climbed to the top of the safety fence. There was no net or stunt double, and no one on the crew knew what was going on. At that point, Williams gave it up, and down Gosling came as producer Jamie Patricof stormed onto the set to shut down filming. “That was dumb,” admits the soft-spoken Gosling, casually dressed in sweater, jeans and boots and looking nothing like a wild man. He explains: “The sun was going down and we were losing the shot. It wasn’t until I was climbing over the fence that I look down and it was like looking at my death. That’s how much the director managed to blur the lines for us between fantasy and reality.”

This is why I’m excited to see this.
