Our toddler was already a fan of VW Beetles so, naturally, loved Herbie. Letterboxd says I've only watched this twice but I'm pretty sure this is my third time round the block, and I'm giving this viewing an extra half star for the toddler entertainment value.
A beautifully crafted film, with consideration in every shot and a kick-ass soundtrack. Winding Refn certainly earned his Best Director award at Cannes this year, helped greatly by the outstanding performances of Gosling and Mulligan. I'll definitely need to see this again, and while I'm not much a fan of ultra-violence I couldn't imagine it working any other way in this film.
