The Disturbing
Ryan Gosling Scene
That Still Haunts
Our Dreams
By MIKE WORBY
Ryan Gosling is an actor of many talents and after playing creepy loners in movies like "Murder By Numbers," "The United States of Leland," and "The Believer," the actor became a bonafide star after landing the role of Noah in the beloved romance picture "The Notebook." However, there’s one disturbing Ryan Gosling scene, from the 2011 film “Drive,” that still haunts our dreams.
In Nicholas Winding Refn's film “Drive,” Gosling plays an unnamed criminal who viciously attacks Nino, played by Ron Perlman, by ramming into his car off of a deserted highway and drowns him while he screams and begs for his life. Part of what makes this scene so troubling is the cold, unflinching, and calculated nature of the attack.
Furthermore, The Driver shows not a single trace of emotion while murdering Nino, making it clear just how cold-blooded and dangerous he truly is. Of course, credit must go to Gosling and Perlman, for succinctly selling the grim terror of the scene and to Refn’s heavily stylized direction, all of which, help make the scene so memorable.
