According to The Hollywood Reporter, Ryan Gosling met his writing and directorial debut to some cheers, along with some overwhelming disapproval. Gosling’s film, entitled, Lost River, starring Christina Hendricks, premiered at the Cannes Film Festival. The reviews were mixed by critics who were either in awe or very confused.

Vanity Fair calls Lost River a “cluttered, patchwork texture.” HitFix reviewed the film, praising the cinematography by Benoit Debie. Overall the consensus by Drew McWeeny of HitFix is that if Ryan Gosling wasn’t in fact, Ryan Gosling, Lost River would have never been shown at Cannes. The script is deemed “thin” while Gosling’s efforts to push the boundaries of cinema are praised.
Gosling has recently starred in Drive, and Only God Forgives, which, according to critics, was the type of film the actor turned director was going for with Lost River, but fell terribly short. The official reviews for the film aren’t in yet, but judging by the initial social media reactions, it looks like Lost River will be “lost” at Cannes.
