With a 26% rating on RottenTomatoes.com, Stay is really an enigma of a film. On the outset, I should be hating a film that is flat on the story even when it tries and fails spectacularly to be deep and mind bending. I should know better not to get tripped up in a film that relies on its laurels of visuals and trippy, factured narrative. Maybe I enjoy the film for the cast of incredible talent and Mr. Baby Goose himself, Ryan Gosling. The more I reflect on the film and the more I watch it, I find myself being sucked into the film itself, almost too David Lynchian in it’s appearance and structure. Damn my love of David Lynch.
