Twitter Capsule: aka James Gray, but even more so, and hotter at the edges. At times, flamboyantly dialed up. At others, heart-piercing.

VOR:   Almost self-conscious as a coming-out party for Christopher Abbott's Gosling potential. Film works best when he's most disciplined. Franker vision of dying than most.
