TRIVIA: First film written and directed by Ryan Gosling.

Matt Smith filmed his scenes during his break away from playing The Doctor on Doctor Who. He had to shave his head for the role of Bully and wore a wig for the last episodes of Doctor Who which were filmed later on.

Thomas McDonald, the actor who plays 'Skip' (the man leaving the area near the beginning of the film), is/was a real life resident of the now sparsely populated shooting location in Detroit.

When Ryan Gosling sent a text to Johnny Jewel (who created much of the film's soundtrack), outlining the influences and intended vibe of the film, Johnny's reply was "dark goonies. cool."

During one scene in the club, a woman can be seen wearing a large skull mask. This mask was originally worn by one of the circus gang motorcycle riders in the film Batman Returns (1992). It was pulled from the basement of the Warner Bros. props department for use in this film.
