“SAY IT AIN’T SO,” I cried whilst howling at the moon and tearing off my shirt upon hearing the news that Ryan Gosling’s ‘Lost River‘ is reportedly…terrible.
The directorial debut from the King of Indie has been as hotly-anticipated as his nipples’ next on-screen appearance and considering how many Hollywood stars are delivering quality with their first features of late, you’d expect The Gosling to keep the trend going.
Instead, it’s been BOOED at Cannes during its screening and has received smatterings of bad reviews elsewhere. We all know that it’s very much a purist’s festival where classics have been slated before going onto greatness but judging from the trailer, the critics might have a point.
By the way, that is Matt Smith.
Here’s a snippet of the reception ‘Lost River‘ has been getting so far. The inhumanity of it all.
Cannes so far lacks a film-maudit crapocalypse. LOST RIVER just supplied it. All Gosling’s pet Lynch films, filtered through Refnvision. — Tim Robey (@trim_obey) May 20, 2014
If a $200 haircut and $900 shades were given lots of money to defecate on Detroit, the result would be Ryan Gosling’s directing debut. — Wesley Morris (@Wesley_Morris) May 20, 2014
