Interesting drama about the tumultuous journey of a self-loathing young Jewish New Yorker (Ryan Gosling) who joins a neo-Nazi organization and becomes a powerful figure in the white supremacy movement, but his carefully constructed persona is jeopardized when a news reporter threatens to reveal his origins. The off-putting subject matter in writer-director Henry Bean's film prompts thought on faith versus intellect yet its stilted narrative doesn't deliver the expected punch despite Gosling's commanding performance. Some hateful violence, a suicide, a sexual encounter with nudity and recurring rough language. The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops classification is A-IV -- adults, with reservations. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R -- restricted.
