Ryan Gosling Directorial Debut Shouts 'Look at My Muscles': VIDEO


Ryan Gosling's directorial debut Lost River, about life in a crumbling Detroit suburb, premiered at Cannes and is inspiring plenty of reaction, according to The Hollywood Reporter:

While the formal reviews have not yet been filed, the first round of critical tweets was decidedly mixed. “Just think,” tweeted The Guardian’s Peter Bradshaw. “If Ryan Gosling hadn’t been such a star actor, he’d never have allowed to direct *stares into space, screams*.” The Toronto Star’s Peter Howell countered, “LOST RIVER: Unholy Motors. Gosling’s Motown fantasy blitzes eye & mind.” Kate Muir of The Times of London dismissed it, saying, “Cripes. Ryan Gosling’s Lost River is a lurid mash up of Lynch, Refn and Edward Hopper. In a bad way.” But Hitflix's Gregory Ellwood enthused, "it doesn't all work but Ryan Gosling hits for the fences with #LostRiver and hits something gorgeous. An unexpected vision."

A trailer for the film has been posted online.

  2. That has the potential of being the most pretentious film ever made.

  3. Biceps are the new tits. Even Gosling has been phased.

  4. An "unexpected vision" would be Ryan staring at you with a boner in his pants.

  5. Mr Gosling should just let the camera make love to him and spare us this really bad movie.

  7. I just knew that vile Dane Refn would be a really bad influence on Gosling. Doing TWO movies in a row with that sociopath couldn't be possibly good! That elevator scene in Drive was beyond repulsive and vicious. I HAVEN'T seen the other one with Kristin Scott Thomas, thank goodness!
    AND Valhalla Rising with that compatriot,TV's Hannibal Lecter, Was JUST another horrifying over the top excess! Ugh!
