Ryan Gosling
Actor, The United States of Leland (2003)
Ryan Gosling, so good in 2001ís The Believer, is flat-out terrible here, playing Leland with a roll-call of wonky gazes, wise asides and placid smiles thatís straight out of the Robin Williams school of spiritual oddballs.
(Xan Brooks, Guardian)
Actor, Lars and the Real Girl (2007)
Ryan Gosling was the critical darling of last year, but here he blows it, pure and simple, as a repressed Midwesterner who falls in love with a sex doll called Bianca. The paunch, the tragic moustache, the excessive blinking - itís such fussy ďcharacterĒ work that the comedy barely has room to breathe.
(Tim Robey, Daily Telegraph)
