The Believer review
231 Views No comments

Not wholly believable

The poster quotes read "It will pin you to your seat", "Riveting", "Volatile". It's all three thanks to a brilliant Ryan Gosling performance. However, it's hard to get behind this film too much when the story-teller omits such important things like telling/showing us what initially drove Danny to turn his hatred on to his own people. I find it hard to believe that it was built on classroom debate alone. Reverse antisemitism is a pretty inspired topic to cover and the film is a tough and emotional one, it's just that unlike the title I wasn't a believer on the whole.
