Speaking of Gosling. I just watched 'Stay' not too long ago for the 2nd time. What an amazing movie, probably the best and most overlooked thing Gosling's ever been a part of. The intricacies of the camerawork, all the subtle things you pick up on that gives you clues to what's going on. I've noticed a lot more details the second time I viewed it than the first, but won't give too much away since it's hard to get into the plot of that movie without giving too much away.
For those that haven't seen it, check it out, it's very special.
Very good film, you hit the nail on the head about finding extra clues/details on the second viewing.
The director Marc Forster has done some good films, I'd especially recommend 'Stranger Than Fiction' if you haven't seen it. It stars Will Ferrell but it's a pretty serious role he plays. Basically his character starts hearing a voice narrating his life. It's fun with an interesting subtext.
Arn's movies have mostly been awful with a few exceptions, and that's mostly because most of them were schwarzploitation meant to be nothing but vehicles to launch him and capitalize on his appeal as a personality. Terminator 1 and 2, Predator and Total Recall are his only films i'd call genuinely good. Some of his comedies were entertaining, but that's because of Arnold's personality more than anything.
