Agreed. He relished the screen for sure, but I didn't think he was over-the-top (or at least as over-the-top as it could have been) by any means for most of the film...that is until those terrifying moments like you mentioned. Definitely a notable performance from him and I definitely hope to see him continue to branch out like this (it would be awesome if he took a cue from Gosling and just did a full-on comedy or something).
