Ryan Gosling on His Directorial Debut ‘Lost River': It Is My Version of Dark ‘Goonies’

13 April 2015 9:25 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Hot Fuzz” director Edgar Wright interviewed Ryan Gosling following a Sunday afternoon screening of the Oscar-nominated actor’s directorial debut, “Lost River,” at the Sundance Sunset Cinema in West Hollywood.

The film — which stars Gosling’s “Drive” co-star Christina Hendricks, Saoirse Ronan (“The Grand Budapest Hotel”), Iain De Caestecker (“Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”), Matt Smith (“Doctor Who”), Ben Mendelsohn (“Bloodline”) and the first-time filmmaker’s partner Eva Mendes — received mostly negative reviews at its premiere at Cannes, including from Variety‘s Justin Chang, who called it a “risible slab of Detroit gothic.”

Gosling opened up about the process of making his first film, stating that his biggest surprise was the production timeline.

“I didn’t know it was going to take three years. You don’t know how to make a movie until you make one. As many as I’ve made as an actor, it doesn’t prepare you at all, »

‘Lost River’ was wronged by Cannes, and is actually quite magnificent

12 April 2015 3:37 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Lost River

Written and directed by Ryan Gosling

USA, 2014

When his film premiered at the Cannes Film Festival last year, many critics reacted as if Ryan Gosling’s directorial debut had manifested itself into an abusive figure that vomited on their shoes, then repeatedly kicked their dog. Such a reaction was completely unearned by Lost River. There are flaws in the film, understandably, but it shines for them.

The film doesn’t follow a plot so much as it gravitates towards a heightened state of dream-like existence. Bones (Ian De Caestecker) is a teenager who strips houses for copper to support his mother, Billy (Christina Hendricks), and his little brother in an economically desperate and abandoned outskirts of a city (the film as shot in Detroit). Doing so gets him in trouble with a local self-proclaimed crime lord, Bully (Matt Smith). Billy, meanwhile, goes to work in a seedy, macabre »

Ryan Gosling a secret Doctor Who fan? 'I've never seen anyone like Matt Smith'

10 April 2015 1:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Ryan Gosling's might be best known for his cool-as-ice roles in Drive and Crazy Stupid Love, but the A-lister steps behind the camera this week for his directorial debut Lost River.

The film boasts an all-star cast of Christina Hendricks, Iain De Caestecker, Eva Mendes and Saoirse Ronan while ex-Doctor Who Matt Smith makes his Us film debut as the villainous Bully.

Is Gosling a secret Whovian? Digital Spy asked him about this and more as we sat down to discuss his dark Detroit-set fairytale.

"I was writing and I heard his voice," he recalled of his first encounter with Smith.

"Doctor Who was on TV and he was doing a scene where he had a microphone and he was literally ruling the universe telling these spaceships how to it was going to be.

"I've never really seen anybody that looks like him or is like him. He's his own thing. »

Ryan Gosling To Star In Guillermo Del Toro's Disney Movie 'Haunted Mansion'

9 April 2015 3:51 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Last month, Ryan Gosling and Guillermo del Toro got together at SXSW to talk about the actor's directorial debut, "Lost River" (check out our report right here). During that talk it was revealed that Gosling and del Toro met a few years before to talk about a project, and though they didn't disclose which one, maybe we have our answer. The Wrap reports that Gosling is in talks to star in del Toro's long developing "Haunted Mansion" for Disney. The movie has been in the works since 2010, and it's been one the director has been eager about. "It's going to be scary. Hopefully it will be fun scary, rather than funny scary. It's going to be fun but the idea is to make it scary like when you go through the ride as the kid — part of you is charmed and part of you wants to get out of there, »

Before Ryan Gosling's directorial debut Lost River debuts in limited theaters and VOD formats tomorrow, Warner Bros. has released three new clips from this dark drama. The new filmmaker does not appear in front of the camera, but he directs an ensemble cast featuring Christina Hendricks, Saoirse Ronan, Eva Mendes, Matt Smith, Iain De Caestecker, Ben Mendelsohn and Barbara Steele.

Lost River review: Ryan Gosling's dark fairytale shoots for the stars

9 April 2015 12:30 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Director: Ryan Gosling; Screenwriter: Ryan Gosling; Starring: Christina Hendricks, Iain De Caestecker, Saoirse Ronan, Matt Smith, Eva Mendes, Ben Mendelsohn; Running time: 93 mins; Certificate: 15

Sometimes it's no fun being Ryan Gosling. No, not the actor who's the beloved star of The Notebook and Blue Valentine, but the filmmaker who saw his deeply-personal directorial debut Lost River savaged by critics at Cannes last year. Debuting three years after Drive blew the roof off the festival's Palais, Lost River received the kind of drubbing that'd have you believe it was a crime against cinema.

Fast forward to now and it's arriving to the masses with around 15 minutes shorn from the Cannes cut - diminished expectations end up doing it lot of favours. Gosling shoots for the stars with Lost River and doesn't quite make it, but why vilify him for showing ambition? Had this been made by a first-timer who wasn't an A-list actor, »

‘Lost River’ Review: Ryan Gosling’s Directorial Debut Is Just as Bad as You’ve Heard

9 April 2015 9:12 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Nicolas Sparks heartthrob … Oscar-nominated character actor … the face that launched a thousand memes. Ryan Gosling can do it all — as long as it’s in front of the camera. Twenty-two years after his screen debut as a Mouseketeer, though, the “Hey Girl” guy is finally floundering in a role: as the new Nicolas Winding Refn, the Danish auteur who directed Gosling in the stylish but empty “Drive” and the stupid and execrable “Only God Forgives.” Gosling’s first turn behind the camera owes a mammoth debt to Refn (and a smaller one to David Lynch). Starring Christina Hendricks, Saoirse Ronan, »

Film Review: 'Lost River'

9 April 2015 1:45 AM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★☆☆ Ryan Gosling makes a return to cinema screens - this time in the director's chair - with his first feature film Lost River (2014), a dark fantasy of a family living in a ghost town to be. The film was largely dismissed by critics upon its premiere at the Cannes Film Festival, yet there's enough here to suggest that Gosling has a future behind - as well as in front - of the camera. Bones (Iain De Caestecker) lives with his young cute moppet of a brother Frankie and his mother Billy (Christina Hendricks) in a small town which is in imminent danger of destruction as banks repossess, houses are bulldozed and residents flee. Next door lives Rat (Saoirse Ronan) with her pet rat Nick and her terminally nostalgic grandmother.

Ryan Gosling makes an intriguing directorial debut with “Lost River”

8 April 2015 11:59 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

I’m a huge fan of Ryan Gosling as an actor, frankly considering him to be among the very best of this generation. As such, I was very interesting in his first foray behind the camera, which happens to be the dark fairy tale of sorts Lost River. He’s worked with some top notch directors in the past, so some interesting things had to have rubbed off on him. Well, he wears a number of influences on his sleeve in Lost River, oddly enough including David Lynch in a huge way. His debut film is a divisive one, but it’s a debut that I think suggests a bright future as a filmmaker. Gosling has a who’s who list of directors that he’s worked with in his career so far, including Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck (Half Nelson), Nick Cassavetes (The Notebook), Derek Cianfrance (Blue Valentine and »

Ryan Gosling Reveals How and Why He Shot 'Lost River'

8 April 2015 11:43 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

When I saw "Lost River" at its Un Certain Regard press screening at Cannes, I thought the actor did a fine job of creating a visually and aurally atmospheric gothic family drama, well-acted by Christina Hendricks ("Mad Men") as a single mom and discovery Iain De Caestecker as her son in time-ravaged Detroit, which was not too far from where Gosling grew up in Ontario. Partially set in an underwater city, "Lost River"'s cast includes Gosling's almost co-star on "Lovely Bones," Saoirse Ronan, his "The Place Beyond the Pines" costars Ben Mendelsohn and Eva Mendes (the mother of Gosling's child), and "Dr. Who" star Matt Smith.  Originally titled "How to Catch a Monster," the film finally opens almost a year later with an April 10 multi-platform release by Warner Bros.

Nicole Kidman dud 'Grace of Monaco' lands on Lifetime

7 April 2015 2:39 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Roughly one year after it was laughed out of the Cannes Film Festival, the Nicole Kidman debacle "Grace of Monaco" had finally found a home... Lifetime. Lifetime announced this week that "Grace of Monaco" will premiere on Monday, May 25 at 8 p.m. Directed by Olivier Dahan ("La Vie en Rose"), "Grace of Monaco" features Kidman in the title role and co-stars Tim Roth, Frank Langella, Parker Posey and Paz Vegas. In his D- review for the film, HitFix's Guy Lodge called "Grace of Monace" "a hilariously ham-handed attempt to dig beneath the Kelly mystique, only to find further foil-wrapped layers of mystique beneath. Well, maybe not mystique so much as a perfumed blankness." "Grace of Monaco" stands at 9 percent Fresh on RottenTomatoes. And now it'll almost certainly get Nicole Kidman a Golden Globe nomination and perhaps Emmy consideration. Who needs Oscars? Lifetime is aggressively pushing into the business of rescuing film festival underperformers. »

Exclusive Video Interview: Ryan Gosling, Saoirse Ronan And Iain De Caestecker Talk Lost River

6 April 2015 7:07 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Ryan Gosling isn’t foreign to the cinematic press junket scene, but when I talked to the auteur at this year’s South by Southwest festival in Austin, the role he was discussing wasn’t his usual one. The upcoming film Lost River has Gosling’s name attached, but not as the star. That would be actor Iain De Caestecker, or actress Saoirse Ronan, or any of the other cast members who traverse the film’s watery wasteland. Instead, Gosling logged credits as the film’s writer and director, marking two firsts for the budding triple-threat. He’s already proven he can act, and through his new film, he also proves that he can string together an artistically-driven experience that’s lively, off-beat, and tragic in the most fairy-tale of ways.

It’s not hard to see where Gosling draws his directorial influences from, especially after running down his laundry list of on-screen roles. »

Movie Review – Lost River (2014)

5 April 2015 9:39 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Lost River, 2014.

Written and Directed by Ryan Gosling.

Starring Ben Mendelsohn, Christina Hendricks, Eva Mendes, Iain De Caestecker, Matt Smith and Saorise Ronan.

Synopsis:

A single mother of two descends into a dark underworld trying to save her childhood home and hold her family together, while her son sets off on a journey to uncover the secret behind the origins of their abandoned city, Lost River.

Lost River, the bizarre and unfeasibly pretentious directorial debut from Hollywood heart-throb Ryan Gosling, plays out as if a punchline to a joke made up of one too many parts, or a film student with a nightmarish Messiah complex. Made up of nonsensical non sequiturs, Gosling plods from one homage to another, nodding towards Nicolas Winding Refn, David Lynch, Harmony Korine and Gasper Noe in the process.

Christina Hendricks plays Billy, mother-of-two, struggling to pay her mortgage as her son Bones (Ian De Caestecker) loots wrecked houses for copper. »

While Lost River, the directorial debut of Ryan Gosling, is quietly being dumped in only three theaters next week before a VOD premiere, a new trailer has arrived with more mysterious visuals and bizarre dialogue that doesn't help explain the plot any further than before.
