I have to disagree with the guy above me in a big way and I'm only about half-way into the film. The scene in the strip club is one of the best "hard-ass walks into a room and gets everyone's attention" scenes I've seen.
Like mgkdragn said, "his [Gosling's] contrast between violence and meek / mild is so unsettling." At least as far as I'm concerned, and assuming you find Gosling's Driver convincing, it is this unsettling contrast that made the strip club scene and the "put on gloves and get truth from woman accomplice" scene so powerful. Almost out of nowhere, I got the sense that this cool, man of few words Driver had a disturbing and unlimited capacity to do violence. Like Ralph, I also get the man with no name vibe, particularly if you cross that character with Viggo Mortensen's from A History of Violence.
The bluray sounds great. Those first few gunshots; wow.
